Jewish Schools and the “Hidden” Curriculum

Posted on July 7, 2013

Rabbi James Kennard discusses the importance of Jewish schools in the development of the Jewish identity.  He goes further to say that the “greatest difference” is made by the “hidden curriculum,” also known as informal education.  Informal education makes learning relevant and brings it to life.

At Areyvut, we believe in the power of informal education or the “hidden curriculum.”  Sometimes the greatest lessons are learned from how one acts, what one experiences and not from what one formally teaches.  Our programs are designed in ways to sometimes teach formal lessons, but more importantly, to teach through informal education with our actions and priorities.
