Shaping Identity & Experience: The Emerging Jewish Self - Identity Formation through Experiential Jewish Education

"Experiential Jewish Education imparts values through proven strategies and methodologies that can have a long-term impact on how our learners respond to the experiences that they encounter. But in order for this to occur, the emphasis must be on a process whereby Jewish learning through experience has the learner answer “what am I going to do about what I’ve just learned?” This type of question works in service of agency. It is what moves learning, understanding and connecting from consequential to evolutionary, and shifts the impact of experiences from interesting to defining."
