NY EVENT: Jewish Education: Understanding the Past, Reimagining its Future

What: Three authors of the newly-published book, Cultures and Contexts of Jewish Education, will offer brief insights about Jewish education – then, now, and tomorrow. Moderator Jane Eisner, Editor-in-Chief of The Forward, will facilitate a conversation among the authors – Barry Chazan, Robert Chazan, and Benjamin M. Jacobs – and pose questions challenging assumptions and probing deeper into what the future of Jewish education might look like. The audience will be invited to engage the authors and each other about this future as well.
