Lukinsky makes a unique and welcomed contribution to the field of Jewish Education. While the Jewish communities from ancient times onward have made education a priority on the communal agenda, it is only since the mid-twentieth century that Jewish Education has developed as an academic field. From the start of his career, Joseph S. Lukinsky has been a leader in the development of the field, offering encouragement and guidance to young scholars, supporting their use of qualitative methods, and challenging them to examine the ideas of the modern Jewish philosophers. This book comprises a collection of articles and scholarly studies written in honor of Joseph S. Lukinsky on the occasion of his seventieth birthday. The wide range of subjects treated in these chapters reflects the catholicity of Professor Lukinskys interests. The contributors to the volume, all noted scholars and educators, are his colleagues and former students. They include prominent academicians from throughout the United States and Israel. Readers of this volume will come away with an appreciation of Lukinskys ability to stimulate an awareness of the potential of Jewish Education to enrich Western education as a whole, as well as to preserve and enhance the quality of Jewish life.
