"Jewish Education" and American Jewish Education, Part I
Krasner, Jonathan
Journal of Jewish Education, v71 n2 p121-177 May 2005
This series of articles explores the history of Jewish Education magazine, later known as the Journal of Jewish Education, with a particular emphasis on its intersection with the history of American Jewish education and, more generally, American Jewish life. Major themes and issues that preoccupied the magazine's editors and writers are isolated and analyzed as to how their discourse sheds light on their individual aims, values, and philosophical outlooks, as well their collective efforts at educational reform. Particular attention is paid to how Benderly's disciples sought to reinterpret their mentor's vision in a changing American Jewish environment and why this vision was, at best, only partially realized. (Contains 115 footnotes.) [For Part II, see EJ834574, and for Part III, see EJ829294.]
