How do Jewish Schools Fit into the Politics of American Education?

Hosted By: Shalom Hartman Institute

What claims do private Jewish schools in America have on government funds and what demands can the government make when it comes to educational standards? What are the broad aims of education in America and how does this play out when it comes to Jewish schools?

The intersection between education and religious liberty has distinctive expressions in the Jewish community. The recent Supreme Court case Carson v. Makin and ongoing debate over New York’s substantial equivalency guidelines bring heightened attention and urgency to these questions. Join Hartman scholars Michael Avi Helfand, Rivka Press Schwartz, and Daniel Braunfeld for an important conversation about the opportunities and limits of religious schooling in America.
