Who is an Educated Jew?

By Paula E. Hyman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2002

Hyman explores the definition of an educated Jew in the past and asks what this definition would or should include today. Examining Jewish learning at present, Hyman argues that living in a multicultural society creates an opportunity and an obligation to shape a fluid Jewish canon, recognizing the diversity of Jewish life as a value.
