Editorial Reviews


"In recent years, the high rate of intermarriage and other demographic factors have created a challenge in transmitting Jewish religion, culture, and values to their children. Prior research shows that Jewish education is the one area in which communal leaders and lay people can make a positive difference in the cultural transmission of Judaism. Here scholars drawn from anthropology, education, history, and sociology offers essays on Jewish education, from interviews about educational decisions with families, teenagers, and Jewish educators to new statistical data about the actual state of Jewish education in American cities." \--Shofar


"Jack Wertheimer and his colleagues have written a book of profound importance to anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of American Jewish life today. This book will spark new and richer discussion and debate among educators, parents, and policy-makers alike about how American Jews exercise their educational choices and about what the community can do to encourage choices that both satisfy those who make them and sustain a vibrant Jewish life." (Dr. Jonathan Woocher, Chief Ideas Officer, JESNA)
