When What We Know about Jewish Education was first published in 1992, Stuart Kelman recognized that knowledge and understanding would greatly enhance the ability of professionals and lay leaders to address the many challenges facing Jewish education. With increased innovation, the entry of new funders, and the connection between Jewish education and the quality of Jewish life, research and evaluation have become, over the last two decades, an integral part of decision making, planning, programming, and funding. This new resource, What We NOW Know about Jewish Education, captures the essence of a field on the cusp of major change and growth as it turns toward research and evaluation for information, insight, affirmation, and inspiration. By bringing together the best thinkers and researchers from a cross section of disciplines and institutions, this new volume provides both professional and lay leadership with a new tool to advance the quality of Jewish education in schools, synagogues, camps, centers and every other venue where Jews are learning formally and informally, building their own personal connections with the Jewish people.
