Between Ritual and Spiritual: Teachers' Perceptions and Practices Regarding Prayer Education in TALI Day Schools in Israel
Muszkat-Barkan, Michal
Journal of Jewish Education, v81 n3 p260-284 2015
The aim of this qualitative study is to describe teachers' perceptions and roles in prayer education in TALI day schools in Israel, using in-depth oral Interviews, written questionnaires and written materials of the schools' network. Two educational ideologies were identified: Belonging to the Jewish collective and Personal-spiritual ideology. While participants perceive the aim of Jewish education as enhancing students' belonging to the Jewish collective, prayer education introduces a personal-spiritual aspect that was not typically a part of teachers' discourse on Jewish education.
