What Did the Teacher Say Today? State Religious Kindergarten Teachers Deal with Complex Torah Stories
Achituv, Sigal
Journal of Jewish Education, v79 n3 p256-296 2013
This study deals with the way in which kindergarten teachers in state religious kindergartens in Israel tell the Torah stories to children. It examines the influence of the teachers' identity, being part of the religious Zionist society, on the way in which she tells the stories. These kindergarten teachers function at a crossroads of identities. It is to be expected that their identity will be complex, reflecting the built-in dissonance of their lives. The Torah stories include an additional complexity based on the characters. The present study deals with the teachers' manner of dealing with the above-mentioned complexities.
