Adult Jewish Education
Interest Up: JESNA

New York — There's a new
trend in American Jewish
life: more adults are engaging
inJewish learning than ever
before. This expanding in-
terest in and success of adult
Jewish education served as
the backdrop for the first
Leadership Conference on
Adult Jewish Learning held
in Chicago last March.
A total of 165 registrants
from 30 communities
gathered under the sponsor-
ship of JESNA, the Jewish
Education Service of North
America, and Jewish federa-
tions and central agencies of
Jewish education, for the two-
day conference.
The conference highlighted
the fact that adult Jewish
education today has become
far more than just syna-
gogue lecture series. Adult
Jewish learning is drawing
the attention and inter-
est of new populations. Com-
munity planning and pro-
gramming have become more
creative, sophisticated and
Florence Melton, one of the
pioneering lay activists pro-
moting adult Jewish educa-
tion, highlighted what
became one of the con-
ference's major themes: the
need for top level leadership
commitment and a planful,
community-wide approach to
adult Jewish education. This
recognition that adults have
special characteristics and
special needs as learners was
another major theme of the
conference. "Many adults are
ashamed at how little Jewish
knowledge they have, much of
which consists of myths and
distortions. However, we must
respect the integrity of the
adult learner while being
careful of the shame. In plan-
ning and presenting pro-
grams we must be aware of
the paradox of need vs.
vulnerability," said Dr.
Joseph Reimer, professor at
the Hornstein Program in
Jewish Communal Service at
Brandeis University.
Reimer suggested following
the approach developed by
Franz Rosenzweig, the Ger-
man Jewish philosopher and
founder of the Lehrhaus, a
model of adult Jewish learn-
ing. Rosenzweig urged that in
working with adults, one
should move "from the
periphery to the center," i.e.,
starting with experiences
which meet the learner at
his/her level of readiness and
interest, and then intensify-
ing the depth and Judaic con-
tent of the learning

Bennett Yanowitz, JESNA's
president, announced- JESNA
is establishing a new Task
Force on Adult Jewish Educa-
tion to advocate continental-
ly and assist communities
locally in creative planning
for adult Jewish education.

Fund Prevents
Teacher Burnout

New York — The Board of
Jewish Education of Greater
New York (BJE) has been
awarded a two-year grant
from the Mazer Family Fund
of UJA-Federation for its
highly successful Inter-School
Visitation Program (IVN) for
educators. The $25,000 grant
matches a two-year "chal-
lenge" grant from the S.H.
and Helen R. Scheuer
The IVN program provides
novice teachers who have just
begun teaching in day schools
— and who are prone to burn
out and leave the field — with
an opportunity to interact
with each other while visiting
and studying under the close
guidance and mentorship of
veteran teachers.
Developed by the Yeshiva
Elementary and High School
Principals' Councils, the pro-
gram has helped 200 new
teachers and cultivated 26
master teachers since its in-
ception in 1980.
Since 1980, only one has
left the field of Jewish
