The Philosophy and Practice of Adult Jewish Education in the United States.
Raskas, Adinah W.
Education has always been a cherished value in the Jewish tradition. For U.S. Jews, until the post-World War II period, the child was the principal focus of educational efforts. With an age shift in the Jewish population in the United States, the need for investigation of Jewish adult educational programs is strong. Most existing programs lack continuity of programmed development. Much current adult Jewish education comes through lecture series and isolated presentations. There is a need for more courses grounded in Jewish thought. Interactive learning has been successful, but under utilized. Changes need to be made in adult education that reflect the needs and resources of the Jewish community. Eighteen references are included. (DB)
