198 Gustavo Daniel Perednik

editor Walter Ackerman
198 Gustavo Daniel Perednik Legitimacy Having revitalized AERMOV, which was originally founded as a synagogue, Centro Hebreo Ioná was perceived as the true represen-tative of the aims promulgated by the original institution long ago. No one could question that it was more faithful to the aims both of the original institution and our own, namely to promote a return to Judaism, than to maintain a secular school and scarcely a minyan. The best demonstration that Ioná, in spite of its newness, was perceived as the legitimate institution was that one year after we started, AERMOV as a whole was officially and legally renamed Centro Hebreo Ioná. Real Attraction Power The continuous, unhalting flow of youth into the institution could only arouse support and satisfaction from all factors genuinely concerned about assimilation. No one would have imagined that the  old shul of Acevedo would be constantly filled with young people. Conviction Our ideological clarity saved us from declining into a merely transient youth group. At all times we radiated conviction in our actions. It is worthwhile mentioning that in their study on three innovative educational administrators, Smith et al. concluded that they ... remain true believers. The broad belief system which we called  the new elementary education, commitments to individualized education, equality, and full development of individual potential remains with each of our administrators. The persuasiveness and staying power of belief systems is a major addition  to current discussions of educational innovation and reform. 45 45 Louis M. Smith, Paul F. Kleine, John P. Prunty and David C. Dwyer, Educational Innovators: Then and Now ( New York: The Falmer Press, 1986), p. 32.   Chapter Home  | TOC t
