Toward a Critical Study of Jewish Education
Chazan, Barry
Journal of Jewish Education, v71 n1 p95-105 Jan 2005
This article proposes a reconfiguration of the academic study of Jewish education that would (1) emphasize the "critical" analysis of an expanded range of issues (2) draw upon a broad range of disciplines and fields of study; and (3) formulate a new research agenda. The article argues that the focus on a "critical" approach to Jewish education studies is not a retreat from practice, but an important step in the enrichment of the academic study of Jewish education, as well as in the enhancement of the practical training of teachers, leaders, and communal professionals.
