The New "Journal of Jewish Education" at Ten: An Appraisal
Krasner, Jonathan
Journal of Jewish Education, v80 n3 p160-192 2014
This article documents the "Journal of Jewish Education's" acquisition by the Network for Research in Jewish Education, in 2004, and evaluates the contribution of the re-launched Journal to the field of Jewish education. I explore how the Journal contributed over the past decade in three discrete yet often overlapping areas, thereby realizing its editors' vision. First, the "Journal of Jewish Education" became the venue for conversations between researchers, practitioners and funders about the direction of Jewish education research and policy; second, it became an outlet for the sharing of research and other Jewish education scholarship; and third, it became a venue where scholars introduced research and theoretical constructs from the field of general education and sought to demonstrate their relevance to Jewish education. Finally, I suggest some reasons why the editors had less success in realizing a fourth goal for the "Journal"; that is, making it a forum for new ideas and the charting of new directions in research and practice.
