The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood

Mordecai M. Kaplan (1881-1983) was one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. We believe that his thought may be even more important in the 21st century.

An Evolving Vision: Add Your Voices

Our 21st Century Kaplanian Vision of Jewish Education is very much a work – in – process.

We fully hope and expect that it will continue to evolve as different people engage with these materials in different ways, in different contexts, for different reasons. We welcome all of it.

After all, how better to honor Kaplan’s legacy than by allowing his ideas to inspire vigorous and robust dialogue and debate about Jewish education in the 21st Century?
