OVERVIEW & USAGE
SCOPE AND CONTENT
The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation Records document the work of the Foundation in the field of Jewish education in North America through the two initiatives it launched and sustained during the late 1980s through to the year 2008: the Commission on Jewish Education in North America and the Council for Initiatives in Jewish Education. These initiatives carried out the Foundation's mission by engaging North American Jewish community leaders in the critical tasks and challenges of Jewish education for the next century – including those of developing high quality personnel for Jewish education at the national and communal levels.
