Jewish Values and Service Learning

By Yonatan Glaser

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2005

The author discusses the value of tikkun olam and the role of social justice in Jewish education. He contends that we need to help name and resolve ambivalence to an activist Jewish agenda. He concludes that if students become sufficiently literate in the syntax and lived meaning of Jewish and liberal-Western traditions, they may become the next generation of its interpreters and authors.
