The Grammar of Congregational Schooling: Looking beyond the Synagogue at an Institutional Template
Lynn-Sachs, Michelle
Journal of Jewish Education, v77 n1 p22-41 2011
This article focuses on one aspect of a case study of three congregations (Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant): the structure of the religious education programs. The three institutions were structured in much the same way, and the way they were structured looked like public school. If we have more in common with our neighborhood churches and public schools than we may have thought, the implication for scholarship and policy work in Jewish education is that we would benefit from more comparative work as we seek to produce more comprehensive scholarship, better informed policies, and more satisfying experiences in synagogue-based education.
