What 19th Century Jewish Education Can Teach Us about Jewish Education Today
Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)
Learning About Learning: Professor Laura Yares in conversation with Professor Jonathan Krasner
Most histories of American Jewish education deride nineteenth-century Jewish Sunday schools. But when Laura Yares (Michigan State University) looked more closely at the curricula, the operative philosophies, and the experiences that students and teachers had in these schools, she found that they did important cultural work. In this session, she will discuss her recent book, ‘Jewish Sunday Schools: Teaching Religion in Nineteenth-Century America,’ and describe what educators can learn from this pioneering generation in American Jewish education.
Join a series of conversations hosted by Mandel Center Director Jon A. Levisohn (Brandeis University), in which leading scholars of Jewish education discuss what they have learned from their investigations of various aspects of Jewish education, and why it matters. This session will be hosted by Jonathan Krasner, Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Chair in Jewish Education Research (Brandeis University).
