Educational Implications of Michael Fishbane's "Sacred Attunement: A Jewish Theology"
Marom, Daniel
Journal of Jewish Education, v74 ns1 p29-51 2008
This article posits Michael Fishbane's Judaic scholarship as a prime resource for Jewish education. The link between the two fields can be made through a translation of the theological underpinnings of Fishbane's insights into Judaism to educational purposes and practices. Initial work with Jewish educators on establishing this link encouraged Fishbane to explicate his theological ideas--an effort that helped generate his recently published tour de force, Sacred Attunement: A Jewish Theology. This article takes a further step by suggesting primary implications of this work for Jewish education, particularly with respect to the characterization, development, and reinforcement of theological dispositions. (Contains 8 footnotes.)
