The concern of this article is to examine the role of Palestine and Zionism in pre-1948 American Jewish education. The predominant ideological stances toward Palestine an Zionism as reflected in curricula and courses of study will be analyzed. The patterns of adjustment of these various curricular stances will be examined in order to determine the emergent mainstream theory and practice of teaching Palestine and Israel in the Jewish school. In both instances the emphasis is on the dynamics of processes in American Jewish education in the context of the broader Jewish and non-Jewish social and educational milieu.
