Publications and Resources
This bibliography (revised June 2007), a work in progress, is an effort to assemble and annotate published material that may be helpful for thinking about various aspects of the teaching of classical Jewish studies (primarily Bible and rabbinic literature). Entries have been recommended by teachers of Jewish studies from a wide variety of settings. The resources include articles and books about the teaching of Jewish studies, as well as other articles and books on Jewish education, Jewish studies and on teaching more generally.
