Networked but No System: Educational Innovation among Bay Area Jewish Organizations
Rubin Ross, Renee
Journal of Jewish Education, v83 n3 p196-208 2017
A widely read article from this journal explores innovative Jewish educational programs, initiatives, and organizations, arguing that these share a comdmitment to being "learner-centered" and recommending that a system be created to foster collaboration among them (Woocher, 2012). Using five San Francisco Bay Area-based organizations--BimBam, Kevah, Sefaria, Urban Adamah, and Wilderness Torah--I test these ideas, finding that some elements of innovation are accurately described. However, some organizations utilize an educational focus beyond Jewish community that demands deeper exploration. And while these organizations share networks, there is little evidence of the creation of a larger Jewish educational system.
