Description 

We are proud to present our readers with Volume 13 of our series: Studies in Jewish Education. It is in full view of the complexities and opportunities attendant upon the derivation of educational insights from philosophy, Jewish thought, academic Jewish disciplines or cultural-social visions – that we present the essays collected in this volume. They signify a direction, rather than a destination. They are “essays” in the original sense of the word, namely rich and productive excursions into areas that have not yet been mapped or definitively summarized.

The volume before you represents the fruit of a joint project, generously supported by both the Melton Centre for Jewish Education of the Hebrew University and the Mandel Leadership Institute. For a period of over two years, a group of highly accomplished scholars, thinkers and educators from the Melton Centre and the Mandel Institute met regularly to explore the issue of educational “translation” from various “external” sources to various kinds of educational contexts, as well the possibility of moving in the opposite direction: from a discussion of known educational projects or practices to the philosophical principles underlying them.
