'A Judaism That Does Not Hide': Teaching the Documentary Hypothesis in a Pluralistic Jewish High School
This article analyzes the experiences of students at a pluralistic Jewish high school learning the documentary hypothesis in biblical scholarship as an approach to reading the biblical text. The author examines selected student writings, locating her analysis of student experience in the context of her particular institution.
