NEW DIRECTIONS IN ADULT JEWISH EDUCATION.
COHEN, SAMUEL I.
TRADITIONALLY ADULT JEWISH EDUCATION WAS SYNAGOGUE OR INSTITUTION SPONSORED AND ORIENTED. SINCE THE WORLD WAR II, A NUMBER OF NATIONAL JEWISH MEMBERSHIP ORGANIZATIONS HAVE EMERGED AS MAJOR SPONSORS OF ADULT JEWISH EDUCATION PROGRAMS. THIS SPONSORSHIP REPRESENTS A NEW DIMENSION IN JEWISH EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY AND PRACTICE. THIS STUDY EVALUATED THE PURPOSE, PHILOSOPHY, AND STATUS OF ADULT PROGRAMS SPONSORED BY THE AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE, AMERICAN JEWISH CONGRESS, B'NAI B'RITH, AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF JEWISH WOMEN. THE CONCLUSIONS OFFER AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE EMERGING CHARACTER AND DIRECTION OF THESE PROGRAMS--EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES ARE ILL DEFINED, METHODOLOGIES ARE ESSENTIALLY THE SAME (LECTURE, DISCUSSION GROUP, HOME STUDY, AND PUBLISHED MATERIALS), INTENSE PROMOTION EXISTS WITHIN EACH ORGANIZATION, AND THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN BUDGETS. THE FOUR ORGANIZATIONAL ADULT JEWISH EDUCATION PROGRAMS REPRESENT A NEW JEWISH EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY--THE MULTI-FACETED EXPOSURE TO THE SEVERAL OPTIONS IN JEWISH RELIGIOUS AND COMMUNAL INVOLVEMENT AND IDENTIFICATION. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN JEWISH EDUCATION, VOLUME 38, NUMBER 2, MARCH 1968. 12 PAGES. (AUTHOR/PT)
