What Really Matters in Synagogue Education: A Comparative Case Study of a Conventional School and an Alternative Program
Litman, Lesley
Journal of Jewish Education, v83 n4 p249-279 2017
This article examines case studies of two part-time synagogue education programs, a conventional "Hebrew School" and an alternative program modeled after Jewish summer camp. Using the lens of teaching of Bible to children in Grades 3-5, the study provides insight into similarities and differences between the two types of programs and the impact of the program structure on the proliferation and/or staying power of one or the other. I found that factors of success in synagogue education may not be dependent on a program's structure ("school"/"camp") but, rather, on factors such as professional learning and content knowledge, among others.
