THE EDUCATIONAL IDEAL

editor Janet Aviad
THE EDUCATIONAL IDEAL OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE RELIGIOUS KIBBUTZ:  TALMUDIC SCHOLAR, PIONEER AND CITIZEN ( Abstract) Marc Silverman The article describes and analyzes the educational ideal of the founders of the Religious Kibbutz Movement. It begins with a brief description of the founders, their background and the motiva­tions behind their desire to establish religious kibbutzim. It then proceeds to describe the major facets of their educational ideal. The founders, who established in 1935 the  Hever HaKvutzot HaDatiot Shel HaPoel HaMizrachi came mainly from Central Europe, especially Germany. They were influenced by the German youth movements, religious socialism, and the Torah lm Derech Eretz movement. They sought to find a way to integrate their three­fold commitment to Torah as an all- encompassing way of life, religious socialism, and  Gemeinschaft ( organic community). The kibbutz structure in the land of Israel within a full- fledged autono­mous Jewish national society seemed to provide the ideal framework for the integration of these commitments. The educational ideal,  talmudic scholar, pioneer, citizen, coined originally by Akiva Ernst Simon in Germany, was adopted by the founders. What specific contents and values did this ideal entail? The organizing principle of the ideal is halakhic humanism. This halakhic humanism includes three major components: 1) commit­ment to Torah and keeping its commandments combined with a critical- rational scientific approach to the world: 2) viewing the 304 Chapter Home  | TOC
