When "Good Enough" Isn't: Redesigning Jewish Education for the 21st Century

By Jonathan Woocher

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), June 2006

The author suggests that a great reimagining of Jewish education would require shifting the question from, "How can we get more learners to do what we want them to do?" to, "What needs and aspirations in their lives can we respond to with rich Jewish content?" Further, technology has changed the ways in which people expect information to be presented and accessed. Finally, Jewish education must take place in contact with the greater world, not in an isolated bubble.
