Call for Papers for Upcoming Themed Issue: Special Needs and Inclusion in Jewish Education


Source: Journal of Jewish Education


The editors of the Journal of Jewish Education are interested in receiving papers that address and consider the phenomenon of Special Needs and Inclusion in Jewish Education. The field of Jewish special education is relatively new, and rapidly growing. Children have special educational needs if they have a learning challenge that calls for a special educational provision to be made for them.

We are interested in receiving thoughtful empirical investigations, whether in Special Needs and Inclusion in Jewish Education – that is, oriented to advancing the successful consideration of this subject—or research about this enterprise.

We are interested in papers from a range of disciplinary vantage points, including (but not limited to):

  • the history and development of the field
  • the sociological consideration of the forces, factors, institutions and dynamics that come into play in advancing or impeding special needs and inclusion in a specific context or from a comparative perspective
  • investigations about the philosophical bases of the field
  • analyses of the pedagogical and curricular challenges that arise in the course of teaching and learning within Special Needs and Inclusion
  • empirical investigations of educational practices in Jewish education intended to engage learners with Special Needs.
