SubjectHistory of Jewish Education, USA


From the early national period to the present day, American Jews have devised an expanding array of educational frameworks for the Jewish education and enculturation of successive generations. Concomitantly, Jewish education, once viewed as a family responsibility in the United States, has come to be seen as a matter of community concern. And You Shall Teach Them Diligently: A Concise History of Jewish Education in the United States, 17762000 examines the trend toward communal responsibility for Jewish education and explores in historical context the origins and growth of such institutions as Jewish day schools, Talmud Torah programs, congregational supplementary schools, early childhood education centers, residential summer camps, Jewish community centers, bureaus of Jewish education, youth groups, Jewish studies courses at universities, campus-based programs for Jewish college students, adult education, Israel experience programs, colleges of Jewish studies, and rabbinical seminaries. This book provides essential background for understanding contemporary Jewish educational realities and more effectively addressing twenty-first-century needs.
