Family Jewishness and Family Education

By Sydney E. Bernard

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

A research project examining the Jewish Experiences for Families program in Detroit found that the primary motivation for participants was to enjoy family time in a Jewish setting. Many also wanted to strengthen their friendship and congregational ties as well. Only a few had the desire to gain Jewish knowledge or deepen their level of home practice of ritual. Therefore, a successful Jewish family education would be one that produced family time and Jewish time and synagogue time at the same time.
