Feedback form is now closed.
We often only hear the negatives about Jewish education despite there being so much right with it. During the course of my discussion, I will be looking at the history of Jewish Education in North America from 1731 to present. We will look at several of the major developments in both the day school and supplemental school movements, the goals and visions of specific schools, the impact of Jewish immigration had on Jewish Education, why did some schools succeed while others failed, and most importantly what can we learn from this history and how to apply it to today's world. The session will conclude by working with together to create a plan to "Make Jewish Education Great Again!"
