In Jonathan Cohen (ed.) Language and Literatures in Jewish Education, 49-73. My aim in this essay is to engage Michael Rosenak's work at two central points: his understanding of the problems which face the Jewish educator who seeks, in a secular society, to initiate students into a fellowship that is "holy"; and his suggestions for how to accomplish this task.
