Careful study of the current state of Jewish education reveals that much of the system is beset by sporadic participation; deficiencies in educational content; an underdeveloped profession of Jewish education; inadequate community support; the absence of a research function to monitor results, allocate resources, and plan improvements. A massive program will have to be undertaken in order to revitalize Jewish education. It was to achieve this goal that the Commission on Jewish Education in North America was established and its work plan is described in this report.
