The recognition that the viability of the Jewish community is inextricably linked to Jewish education and widespread dissatisfaction with the effectiveness of the Jewish education delivery system have brought about a restructuring revolution. In the process, the roles, functions, structure, and even the very existence of central agencies for Jewish education have been questioned by federations in community after community. This article suggests a collaborative planning model that uses the assets and capabilities of the federations, central agencies, and the schools.
