How do people learn to be Jewish now, amidst a flow of media and online platforms, of text and video and audio that is mostly free and on-demand, and that competes with more traditional sites, sources, and structures of Jewish education? With support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, my research team at Stanford’s Concentration in Education and Jewish Studies, including Professor Antero Garcia, Dr. Molly Zielezinski, and Dr. Mia Bruch, tried to answer this question.

This article seeks to understand how leaders in non-Orthodox American Jewish communities squared an emerging affinity for Jewish day schools with their liberal commitments to public education. Focusing on the period between the mid-1960s and the mid-1970s, and taking 1968 as a turning point, this article explores the ways in which American Jewish leaders understood and formulated a new vision for Jewish education that could allow for both an increased commitment to the education of Jews within exclusively Jewish contexts, yet did not compromise their liberal political commitments to public education. Sensitive both to claims of antisemitism and to fears that they would be seen to endorse "white flight," American Jewish leaders carefully constructed a vision of day school education that they hoped would align both with liberal political commitments and to a concern for the transmission of Jewishness to the next generation.

Contemporary Jewry is proud to announce a Call for Papers for a special issue focusing on education. Guest edited by Professor Ari Y Kelman (Stanford University), the special issue will feature articles and studies that take a social scientific approach to scholarship at the intersection of Jewish Studies and Education. As the only academic journal dedicated to publishing social scientific research about Jews, Contemporary Jewry invites proposals that engage with educational phenomena within broader social, cultural, religious, or political contexts.

The authors report results from a study designed to address three questions:1) How broad-based is alienation from Israel among young American Jews?2) Can the gap in support for Israel between younger and older American Jews be explained as a (temporary) life-cycle phenomenon? 3) Are the age-related variations related, as many believe, to political (i.e., left-of-center) orientations? Or are other factors more critical? The authors find that these trends are related more to age-cohort (year of birth) than to stage of life. But the authors find no evidence to suggest that political affiliation is related to alienation from Israel among young American Jews.
