Rethinking and Redesigning the Religious School

By Sara Lee, Robert Weinberg, Isa Aron

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), March 2002

This article takes a close look at religious schools, stressing their importance, as the majority of the community receives their Jewish education through these schools. Focusing on improving religious schools, the authors believe that the root of the problem these schools face is in the conflicting goals and expectations of teachers, parents, and community. Their recommendations include parental involvement, arts events and other large-scale events, combining instruction with after-school day care, and flexibility of schedule. The authors further present the Experiment in Congregational Education initiative of the Hebrew Union College.
