The Good News: Jewish Education in the '00s
This past decade had its share of bad news, something I've already documented in detail. But in the areas of Jewish education and use of technology, at least, these have been in many ways the best of times. Last week JESNA ("advancing Jewish learning, transforming Jewish lives") chose what it considers to be the best in Jewish education of the decade, a list that includes Birthright Israel and the P.J Library. My colleague Rabbi Jason Miller documents this list on his blog, and then proceeds to add his own list of the best innovations in Jewish education over the past decade, including such game changers as J-Date and the Jewish Outreach Institute. It's a list that I generally agree with. Check it out at http://blog.rabbijason.com/.
