Mareschal, Teresa L.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n133 p59-70 Spr 2012
The history of adult Jewish education is rich and is replete with learning opportunities for Jewish adults, and Jewish women are active participants in adult Jewish education. In this chapter, the author examines Reform Jewish women's motivations to participate in adult Jewish education. First, she provides a historical overview of Judaism and Jewish education in the United States. This is followed by a brief discussion of the four branches of Judaism. The remainder of the chapter focuses on adult Jewish education in St. Louis, Missouri. This includes adult education offered in the Jewish community, examples of the forms of adult education within Reform Judaism, and Reform Jewish women's participation in these educational opportunities.
