Theological Issues for Orthodox Educators

By Jack Bieler

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2002

The author argues that in order to make Jewish study religiously meaningful, educators must proactively offer thoughtful and well-developed investigations of Jewish theology to those engaged in obtaining Jewish education. He asserts that if God and His Torah are not mere intellectual constructs by which a person strives to make sense of the world, but rather real, existential verities upon which one bases his/her lifestyle, as is the case in Orthodoxy, we must grapple with the "disconnects" that continually challenge the validity of our theological premises.
