What can we learn from carefully crafted portraits of nine well-regarded Jewish day schools that vary in size, location, sponsorship, ideological orientation? How do these schools go about their work and how do school leaders respond to the pressing challenges that day schools face in the 21st century?
Authors Alex Pomson and Jack Wertheimer share highlights from their 2022 book, Inside Jewish Day Schools: Leadership, Learning and Community and respond to comments and questions from Amanda Pogany (Luria Academy), Daniel Held (UJA Federation of Greater Toronto) and Susie Tanchel (Hebrew College). Sharon Feiman-Nemser (Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education) moderates the discussion.
Inside Jewish Day Schools was published as part of the Mandel-Brandeis Series in Jewish Education.
