They touch upon core issues facing Jewish educators today: identity development, Jewish indentification, the impact of media and Internet use on Orthodox Jewish youth, challenges in teaching universalism in a particularistic culture, teaching Judaism in a post-modern world, educational implications of the 2001 Jewish Population survey, Zionist attitiudes among yeshiva students in Israel, and more.
