Spirituality Amid Dogma? Some Approaches to Educating for Religious Belief within a State Religious School in Israel
In the religious school, where young people are brought into religious life and practice, the development of a religious belief system is often neglected. Religiousness is often instilled as a linear end product, a monolithic corpus of ideas to be singularly transmitted and subsequently owned by youth.

The dynamic between teachers' voices and students' voices sheds light on adolescent religious identity, and offers vital insights for religious education.
