Holzer, Elie – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
How might one perceive the role of his or her "hevruta" partner in the "hevruta" learning relationship? Drawing on recent developments in the scholarship of rabbinics, this article offers an interpretation of a Talmudic legend that discusses three forms of interpersonal relationships in "hevruta" learning. Rather than considering "hevruta"…

Greenstein, Edward L. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
Many Bible scholars have become aware of the fact that the results we produce are dependent on the particular approaches that we choose to employ, and have become more self-conscious about the methods we use and the reasons we use them. Each approach to the analysis and interpretation of a text will yield its own type of meaning or understanding.…

Birkeland, Sarah; Feiman-Nemser, Sharon – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
Effective school-based induction for new teachers involves much more than mentoring; it requires a comprehensive array of supports buttressed by a collaborative professional culture. Yet few schools are able to offer such a nourishing environment to their new hires. What would it take to bridge the gap between the real and the ideal? In 2005 team…

Pekarsky, Daniel – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
This article takes as its starting point the conviction that high quality Jewish education depends heavily on high quality teaching. Grounded in this idea and in a multileveled exploration--one indebted to recent Jewish thought--of the nature of excellence in teaching and its defining characteristics, the article proceeds to try to understand…

Levisohn, Jon A. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
This article builds on Greenstein's advocacy of a "pragmatic pedagogy of Bible" by pursuing four issues. First, do we select among methodological approaches to Bible according to our desired interpretive outcome but not according to any internal criteria? Is it merely a matter of "choice"? Second, in what sense are interpretive approaches usefully…

Raider-Roth, Miriam; Holzer, Elie – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
This article focuses on the ways "hevruta" learning can contribute to teachers' capacity to be present to self, other, subject matter and the cultural context in which the learning occurred. "Hevruta" learning, when conceptualized for the purposes of teachers' professional development, brings to the fore both the interpretive and relational…

Holtz, Barry W. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
Edward Greenstein's article reminds us of the important contributions that academic scholars of subject matter can make to the discourse of Jewish education. This response highlights some of Greenstein's argument and explores an area that his article does not examine in depth: the role of teachers' beliefs in the pedagogic decisions that they…

Rosenak, Michael; Rosenak, Avinoam – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
This article examines the educational philosophy that arises from several focal writings of Rabbi J. B. Soloveitchek. These specific writings, however, do not deal directly with education, and the article illustrates the way that educational doctrine can be shown to arise from philosophical writings as such. On the basis of this research, the…

The present study examined the way in which children attending Orthodox Jewish schools internalize the value of both their Jewish studies and secular studies, as well as the value of Jewish cultural practices. A distinction was made between identified internalization, where children perceive Jewish studies and Jewish culture to be an important…

Schein, Jeffrey – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
The emerging field of educational visioning is full of challenges and phenomena worthy of careful analysis and documentation. A relatively neglected phenomenon is the learning curve of the leaders (often lay leaders) involved in the visioning process. This article documents a range of experiences of the author serving as a vision coach to five…

Rechnitzer, Haim O.; Brandes, Gabriella Minnes – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
In this article, we explore the transition from philosophical and theological manifestos to their practical and educational implementation as we analyze the official American Reform-Judaism discourse as curricular text. This analysis provides a tool for a discussion of the relationships between vision and its implementation particularly for…

Maoz, Darya; Bekerman, Zvi – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
Fundamentalists and modernists seem, at times, to work in contrapuntal interdependency. While the fundamentalist's rhetoric markets its image as celebrating the renewal of an authentic past identity in modernity, modernists state the need for and possibility of adapting a cherished past to modern assumptions. Yet, it seems as if it is the…

Sztokman, Elana Maryles – Journal of Jewish Education, 2009
The religious school, where young people are brought into religious life and practice, the development of a religious belief system is often neglected. Religiousness is often instilled as a linear end product, a monolithic corpus of ideas to be singularly transmitted and subsequently owned by youth. However, educational research by Gareth…

For many…
