Two Jews, Three Opinions examines a unique educational movement that began in 1980 when eight school leaders met to create RAVSAK: the Jewish Community Day School Network, an association of schools distinguished by being inclusive of all Jews in their communities. This singularly-purposed segment of the Jewish educational mosaic has not been studied before. As American Jews struggle with changing demographics and identities, it is instructive to see how community day schools and their network anticipated and accommodated many of this century’s most significant Jewish educational challenges. Two Jews, Three Opinions illuminates the community day school network’s embrace of Klal Yisrael, the unity of the Jewish people. It describes what led to RAVSAK’s success and then to its elimination as an entity, the exceptionality and importance of which was vastly undervalued and underserved by the American Jewish establishment. Arguing for the vital importance of pluralistic Jewish education in the twenty-first century, it issues a call to Jewish communal leaders to champion community day schools as guarantors of a knowledgeable and committed Jewish future.
