No Trust, No Torah

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I am a voracious reader.  I particularly love to find books that allow me to create a new connections between exciting intellectual work in one field, and relating it to my work as a rabbi and Jewish educator.  This morning, I published a blog post on Professor Miriam Raider-Roth’s Trusting What You Know: The High Stakes of Classroom Relationships entitled No Trust, No Torah, where I analyze how we can relate Raider-Roth’s work on trust in the classroom to specific challenges in Jewish education.   Please read the post, and let me know how this relates to your own Jewish experience and perspective on Jewish education.
