RUACH: Promoting Religious Purposefulness in Jewish Schools

 

The Institute for Educational Partnership and Applied Research at Yeshiva University’s Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration (Azrieli) is working with six Jewish day high schools to increase the schools’ focus on, and effectiveness in advancing, the religious development of their students. Azrieli faculty will (1) work with each school to develop action plans and assessment tools to enhance the capacity of their educators to promote spiritual growth in the areas of their students’ relationship with God and their religious beliefs and actions, in line with each school’s goals; (2) increase their own knowledge base to better enable Azrieli faculty to teach their students how to promote religious purposefulness; and (3) create and disseminate, for other day schools, best educational practices designed to enhance spiritual growth.
