Jewish Education Series, volume 7
Joseph Lukinsky (1930–2009) was one of the preeminent scholars in the field of Jewish education during the past half-century.
As a teacher and mentor, he had a profound influence on generations of Jewish educators — scholars, teachers, rabbis, and educational leaders in a wide range of settings.
This volume contains a very large selection of Joe Lukinsky’s published work.
“Joseph Lukinsky was a man with a deep intellectual honesty and a love of Judaism that struck all of us who knew him during his all-too-short life. Those two qualities are amply illustrated in this long-awaited and valuable collection of his writings.”
Samuel Heilman – Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Queens College, CUNY
“This book will introduce two generations of Jewish educators to the works of a fertile, wide-ranging Jewish thinker. Through his writings, those of us who did not have the privilege of knowing Joseph Lukinsky in person, will come to know his lasting contributions to our field.”
Isa Aron – Professor of Jewish Education, Rhea Hirsch School of Education, Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles, California
