Studies in Jewish Education I: Theory...

The focus of this volume is the state of the Jewish educational research and its impact on practice.

PREFACE This volume is the first of a new series of publications on Jewish education presented under the auspices of the Samuel Mendel Melton Centre for Jewish Education in the Diaspora of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. ( The second volume will present the proceedings of the Dushkin Conference on Research: Jewish Education, held at the Hebrew University, June, 1980.) This publishing endeavor represents the Centres general commitment to enriching Jewish education in various ways, including research. This volume collects several disparate types of research and is not limited to one theme or methodology; subsequent volumes will continue to deal with a broad range of issues and methodologies, as well as focusing on specific themes. Several people were instrumental in bringing this project to fruition. It was initiated during the tenure of Dr. Michael Rosenak as director of the Melton Centre for Jewish Education in the Diaspora. His initiative and wisdom guided our work throughout, and are deeply appreciated. Professor Seymour Fox ( former Director of the School of Education of the Hebrew University) and Moshe Davis ( founding Head of the Institute of Contemporary Jewry of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem), the directors of the two parent bodies of the Melton Centre, provided much support and guidance for the project. Mr. Alan Hoffmann, Associate Director of the Melton Centre for Jewish Education in the Diaspora, facilitated the many practical issues related to turning a body of papers into a book. We should particularly like to acknowledge the work of Dr. Ron Kronish, who supervised the copy editors of this volume, including Ms. Nancy Schoenburg 7 Chapter Home  | TOC
