Service learning in the Jewish community: connecting the community and Jewish Studies

"Service Learning in the Jewish Commnunity: Connecting the Community and Jewish Studies" was written for Jewish communal leaders, Jewish Studies directors, and faculty who would like to involve undergraduates in Jewish communal agencies and educational institutions. This booklet outlines the theoretical and historical basis for this form of experiential education. It provides a "how to" guide for establishing a service learning class, using the course at California State University, Northridge, as an example.
