The Potential and Challenges of Experiential Education in Jewish High Schools: Shabbatonim and Beyond

By Jeffrey Kress

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE), June 2009

At the 2009 NRJE (Network for Research in Jewish Education) Conference held at Yeshiva University, Jeffrey Kress presented an analysis of the forms and functions of education in Jewish high schools, and the challenges that will arise as a result of implementing experiential education in these schools. The author discusses the importance of staff-student relationships in these schools, and further asserts that self-reflection, which focuses on the recipient rather than the messenger, can be enhanced to promote the integration of experiences beyond those associated with school.
