In Contemporary Jewry 13, 60-73. A common conflict between parents and a principal in a synagogue school is analyzed in terms of Turner's "social drama." The analysis suggests why synagogues are vulnerable to these conflicts, how these conflicts unfold and how the way stakeholders play their roles contributes to a cohesive or disharmonious outcome to the drama.
