Studies in Jewish Education IV: Curriculum...

The present volume, the fourth in the series Studies in Jewish Education, is dedicated to the subject of curriculum and the teaching of Hebrew.

INTRODUCTION This volume includes papers delivered at the International Conference on Jewish Education held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in June 1984. The first collection was published two years ago, and focused upon the history and sociology of education and the teaching process. The present volume, the fourth in the series Studies in Jewish Education, is dedicated to the subject of curriculum and the teaching of Hebrew. One major challenge to Jewish education is the relationship of Jewish and general subjects within a single curriculum. The abiding temptation is to separate religious and secular spheres, thereby creating an artificial dichotomy within the schools which conflicts with the actual experience of the students. The essays of Bennett Solomon, Moshe Sokolow and Sol Schimmel confront the question of integration non- defensively, seeking to break through boundaries, widen interpretative perspectives, and, in the view of the authors, enrich understanding. Sokolow and Schimmel approach the problem of integration from the sensitive field of biblical studies and relate non-traditional sources and hermeneutic tools with the sacred text. Schimmel builds a curricular unit upon a daring comparative analysis of the trials of Jeremiah ( Book of Jeremiah, Chap. 7, 26) and Socrates, as recorded in Platos Apology. The analysis suggests contrasts and similarities on both the moral and intellectual levels, which cannot but deepen the students grasp of each text. 9 Chapter Home  | TOC
