In the 1990s and the early 2000s, Jewish educators and educational institutions started talking about “vision” in a new way, prompted by the efforts of the Mandel Foundation and especially its influential leader Seymour Fox. For many, the publication of ‘Visions of Jewish Education’ (2003) was a landmark event in the field. Jon A. Levisohn (Brandeis University) will discuss a forthcoming article in which he analyzes how Fox’s ideas about vision in Jewish education developed over time, some of the challenges that he encountered, and what we can still learn from them. This session will be led by Professor Jonathan Krasner (Brandeis University).
Jon A. Levisohn is the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Associate Professor of Jewish Educational Thought, and the director of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education (MCSJE).
