The New Hebrew School Will Take A Village: Envisioning a Family-Centered, Synagogue-Based and Community Enriched Model
Rabbi Joy Levitt, the executive director of the JCC in Manhattan, shares her vision of a new model for Jewish supplementary education which would replace the traditional after-school Hebrew school mode,l which many students and parents see as highly unsuccessful in providing a Jewish education. She proposes a model based on a communal responsibility for Jewish education, placing more choice (and responsibility) in the hands of children and parents and providing children the opportunity to follow their passions.
