North American Jewish Studies
By Deborah Dash Moore, Vassar College
Although pessimism does not come naturally to me, I have sustained high levels of frustration for close to two decades as Jewish studies has grown and flourished in the United States. My frustration stems from the pace and direction of that growth, specifically the almost total lack of opportunities despite strong student interest to teach the history of Jews in the U.S. (or what we provincially call American Jewish history, resolutely ignoring both Canada and the rest of the Americas).

On the Cutting Edges of Jewish Education
By Joseph Reimer, Dept. of Jewish Studies, McGill University
During this past decade North American scholars in Jewish Education have moved away from an earlier focus on curriculum and the classroom and towards the broader conditions of "success in Jewish education."

Jewish Education
By Norma Joseph, Concordia University
Not only were the elite to be learned, not only were men to be scholars, but all Jews, including female Jews, needed schooling. Many American Jews came to believe that one could not be a good Jew without some form of Jewish education.
