Dynamics of Isolation and Integration in Ultra-Orthodox Schools: The Epistemological Implications of Using Rabbeim as Secular Studies Teachers
Krakowski, Moshe
Journal of Jewish Education, v74 n3 p317-342 Sep 2008
This article explores the complex dynamics that take place in ultra-Orthodox schools as they attempt to maintain a contra-acculturative stance toward secular knowledge, while providing students with the necessary tools to become functioning members of society. Using two case studies, this article looks at how the recent practice of using Rabbeim as secular studies instructors in elementary schools might reflect broader communal and cultural changes in ultra-Orthodox attitudes toward the integration of the secular and the religious. (Contains 2 tables and 3 footnotes.)
