Across the Divide: What Might Jewish Educators Learn from Jewish Scholars?
Holtz, Barry W.
Journal of Jewish Education, v72 n1 p5-28 May 2006
This article explores the possible contribution to Jewish education found in the resources of Judaica scholarship. It begins by exploring the complex and often uneasy connection between the world of the university and the world of education and then offers an alternative to this tension by suggesting ways that Jewish subject matter scholarship might both help expand Jewish educational "research" and improve the actual "practice" of education. Four models are offered as means of implementing these ideas. These models are explored through specific examples and analysis of the potential advantages and challenges embedded in each. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
