New Partners in Jewish Education: Independent Afterschool Jewish Education Programs and Their Relationships with Congregational Supplementary Schools
Novak Winer, Laura
Journal of Jewish Education, v83 n3 p173-195 2017
In recent years the Jewish community has witnessed a growth in the development of Jewish afterschool programs that provide childcare as well as Jewish educational programming to elementary age children. This possible trend may represent a diversification of options for families seeking to provide Jewish education and Jewish experiences for their children. Through a close examination of three afterschool programs and neighboring congregations, this article will consider whether these new start-up educational institutions threaten or complement the existing Jewish educational structures such as the congregational supplementary school and whether or not there are opportunities for congregational schools and afterschool programs to partner in serving families and what might those partnerships look like.
