Contemporary Form

Talmud Torah schools continue to exist throughout the Jewish world. They are usually primary schools whose curricula incorporate Jewish and secular material in order to prepare students for Jewish education in the high school or yeshiva environments. Talmud Torah schools tend in their contemporary form to be mixed schools which follow a traditional orientation to Jewish education—that is, one which approach to Judaism is congruent with the Sephardic and historic Ashkenazi orientation, as opposed to the nineteenth- and twentieth-century emergence of Ashkenazi denominations such as the Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist movement

Famous quotes containing the words contemporary and/or form:

    I have the strong impression that contemporary middle-class women do seem prone to feelings of inadequacy. We worry that we do not measure up to some undefined level, some mythical idealized female standard. When we see some women juggling with apparent ease, we suspect that we are grossly inadequate for our own obvious struggles.
    Faye J. Crosby (20th century)

    For Mercy has a human heart,
    Pity, a human face;
    And Love, the human form divine,
    And Peace, the human dress.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
