This short article outlines the importance of identity training, not just textual training, in day schools due to the many ways that identity is no longer being reinfornced outside of the classroom. It starts by defining identity and what makes up Jewish identity, ways in which identity (in general) is developed, and the repercussions for Jewish identity development and the ways in which it is formed. It closes with an emphasis on the potential for day schools, which have long been about merely teaching skills, to enhance Jewish identity.

The article is attached in PDF form.
