Call for Papers for volume 2 of the NewCAJE Journal: Jewish Educator
NEW MODELS IN JEWISH EDUCATION
Hannah Arendt said that “Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token save it from that ruin which, except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and young, would be inevitable.”
We have seen the emergence of new models to deal with the longtime challenges that have plagued Jewish education. Technology has boosted the delivery of Jewish education at all levels, engaging children has become the watchword, and creative thinking has brought learning to the places where those looking for knowledge and engagement can be found. Charter Schools are giving even Orthodox parents pause when considering where to enroll their children.
But are these changes accomplishing our goals? Are we providing a solid Jewish base of knowledge for our children, while creating and inspiring lifelong learners?
In this issue of the NewCAJE’s online journal, The Jewish Educator, we ask seasoned educators, young professionals, and those with theoretical and practical knowledge, to offer a glimpse into the best of Jewish education today and tomorrow as they consider some or all of the thought-provoking questions below.
Please send your essays of 500 – 1000 words by July 5 to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
Focus on the Future
Before, After, and the Supplemental
| We are seeking writers from all spheres of Jewish education (early childhood Jewish education, supplemental school from aleph through high school, day school at all levels, family education, and informal education).
In conjunction with the issue, there will be an online opportunity to discuss the experiences that are shared and the goals that are set forth.
