Zakai, Sivan – Journal of Jewish Education, 2021
This article offers a detailed study of one child's relationships to Israel from kindergarten (2012-2013 academic year) through 7th grade (2019-2020 academic year). By tracing Avigail over the course of eight years, I argue that children do not develop "a relationship" with Israel but rather many different relationships over time. Using…

This study focuses on the metaphors used by modern Orthodox Israeli women aged 18-30 who studied in seminars in Israel where "havruta" learning is practiced to refer to their learning experience.

Kanarek, Jane L. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2021
Although Talmud study is central to rabbinical school curriculums, rabbinical students' experiences with Talmud study remain understudied. This article draws on interviews with students from five seminaries to argue that students describe Talmud study as a process of acquiring both knowledge and authenticity. These two goals intersect with a…
