The Longest Running Social Drama, Now Playing at a Congregation (of Learners) near You
Aron, Isa
Journal of Jewish Education, v73 n1 p25-49 Jan 2007
This article deals with a recurrent situation in congregational schools, in which parents lobby for a reduction in the number of days per week of instruction. Following two similar studies by Joseph Reimer, the article utilizes the theoretical construct of a "social drama" as a frame for the recounting and analysis of a recent occurrence of this conflict at Kehillat Lomdim. In contrast to the cases brought by Reimer, this congregation convened a task force to study the underlying educational issues related to Hebrew instruction; the task force arrived at a decision that was both educationally sound and satisfying to both sides of the debate. (Contains 1 table and 12 footnotes.)
