Levisohn, Jon A. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
We are sometimes told that practitioners have a hard time with theory. But those who are committed to nurturing a certain kind of intellectual capacity among Jewish educational practitioners--the capacity to identify and critically engage with vision in Jewish education, a capacity that we can call a "philosophical disposition"--must accept the…

Ross, Renee Rubin – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
Given that all schools solicit parent participation, an important question is whether and how this varies by school. I draw on observation and interviews with parents, teachers, and administrators at a Jewish day school and Catholic school to identify forms and patterns of participation. I found that communicating and volunteering were similar at…

Kent, Orit; Cook, Allison – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
This article presents a pedagogical framework for interpreting and discussing texts with others, ""havruta" inspired pedagogy."

Woocher, Jonathan – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
A century ago a group of educators led an effort to transform American Jewish education to enable it to operate successfully in the 20th century. Today, with American Jews living under very different conditions, a similar effort is needed to reinvent Jewish education for the 21st century. Changes and new initiatives already taking place on the…

Kardos, Susan M. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
Jonathan Woocher's "Reinventing Jewish Education for the 21st Century" presents a vision for a reimagined system of Jewish education. The educational landscape is changing, Woocher says, both because of a myriad of contextual factors (economic, geopolitical, technological, sociological) and because of the very need for Jewish educational decision…

Kelman, Ari Y. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
This author states his belief that Jon Woocher's essay is the latest in a long line of jeremiads bemoaning the state of Jewish education. Kelman believes that, though a bit more sanguine than the other "withering portraits" he cites, Woocher's essay falls very much in their tradition of critique and corrective; "Here's what's wrong," argues each…

Picker, Lonna S. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
While Woocher's vision for the future of Jewish education is ambitious, the ability to deliver any plan successfully depends upon the strengths of professionals and the guidance and support provided for them. This author contends that unless people create opportunities for teachers/educators to explore common issues, seek possible solutions, and…

Davids, Mindy B. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
As the author reads through Dr. Woocher's article, she was inspired and excited by his call to reassess goals and by the possibilities he describes. At the same time, she felt overwhelmed by the complexity of the issues and the breadth of potential solutions educators face as Jewish communities in 5773. Woocher points straight to the heart of…

Woocher, Jonathan – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012

It is both gratifying and humbling to read the responses of distinguished colleagues to his article in the "Journal". Their comments serve as stimuli for much reflection and re-thinking as he continues to grapple with the themes addressed in…

Sales, Amy L. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
Reinventing Jewish education is not about tinkering at the surface level but at creating deep change, a new paradigm. Superficial change is built on existing models, but deep change dramatically breaks with the past and challenges current models, norms, values, and beliefs. A paradigm shift is a radical move and, as many have discovered, it is…

Pekarsky, Daniel – Journal of Jewish Education, 2012
Jonathan Woocher is to be commended for offering his thought-provoking "big picture" account of where the field of Jewish education has been and where, if it is to be successful, it needs to be going under the conditions of life in the 21st century. Woocher's capacity to use an array of relevant perspectives and literatures to illuminate the…
