Applying Jewish Studies in the "Real World"

By Carol Levithan

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2002

Levithan begins by recounting a moment in rabbinical school where a professor suggested that as an academic, she would be able to transmit her superb education in the Hebrew Bible, while as a rabbi it would most likely be wasted. She hasn't found this to be the case and goes on to describe how her Jewish Studies education has inspired and deeply informed her work as an educator, through which she has drawn Jews of all ages, backgrounds, affiliations and beliefs into the extraordinary richness of the tradition.
