This paper will engage with a number of questions, while touching upon insights derived from the realms of Jewish thought, philosophy of halakhah, and philosophy of education. I shall relate to the definition of that area known as “Judaism,” which is prior to the question of “Jewish identity”: that is, what is the “Judaism” towards which we are socializing? What is the cultural framework that serves as the subject of our discussion, and what is the educational goal? My remarks shall be divided into three parts: (1) examination of basic concepts and the model of “theory and praxis”; (2) discussion of the modern context of this issue, through examining the teaching of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, founder of Neo-Orthodoxy in Germany, as a faithful expression of confrontation with the challenge of socialization to Judaism in the modern world; (3) the creation of some initial contours towards understanding the contribution of praxis to processes of socialization in multi-cultural contexts (commonly found in post-modern discourse).
