Crane, Jonathan K. – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021

The research literature on leisure indicates that it is perceived differently by sector and culture. In Israel, one's affiliation with religious or non-religious groups affects one's perception of leisure and its legitimacy.

These two goals intersect with a…

The article examines, as a model, the Rabbinic…
