About this title
In recent years, the high rate of intermarriage and other demographic factors have created a challenge for American Jewry: How can rabbis, policy planners, educators, and parents transmit most effectively Jewish religion, culture, and values to their children? Prior research shows that Jewish education is the one area in which communal leaders and lay people can act to make a positive difference in the future cultural transmission of Judaism. "Family Matters" offers ground-breaking essays on Jewish education by scholars drawn from anthropology, education, history, and sociology. Essays by Steven M. Cohen, Sylvia Barack Fishman, Shaul Kelner, Jeffrey S. Kress, Alex Pomson, Riv-Ellen Prell, and Jack Wertheimer range from interviews about educational decisions with families, teenagers, and Jewish educators to sweeping new statistical data about the actual state of Jewish education in American cities. Making new links among parents, community, and Jewish schools, "Family Matters" is a vital study in the sociology of the contemporary American Jewish community.About the Author:
Jack Wertheimer is the Provost at the Jewish Theological Seminary, New York, and author of several books about American Judaism, including two published by Brandeis University Press, The American Synagogue: A Sanctuary Transformed (1995) and A People Divided: Judaism in Contemporary America (1999).
