"Jewish Education" and American Jewish Education, Part II
Krasner, Jonathan
Journal of Jewish Education, v71 n3 p279-317 Sep 2005
In this series of articles, I explore the history of "Jewish Education" magazine with particular emphasis on its intersection with the history of American Jewish education and American Jewish life more generally. I isolate major themes and issues that preoccupied the magazine's editors and writers, and analyze how their discourse sheds light on their individual aims, values, and philosophical outlooks, as well their collective efforts at educational reform. I am particularly interested in elucidating 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. [For part I, see EJ834559 and for part III, see EJ829294.] (Contains 90 footnotes.)
