This important and interesting subject has been controversial since the beginning of the 20th century. The changes in the Jewish society forced social-political activists to adopt modern methods of educating the youth. This task demanded a lot of effort as the adolescents were to be educated in the spirit of particular parties, meanwhile there was lack of modern text books in the languages of instruction chosen by the organizations; there were no teachers or classrooms. Despite all of this, already in the 1920s there was a network of actively operating private Jewish schools in Poland. We will talk about their situation, look closer into what happened in Jewish education just after the war and we will ponder on the meaning of the „Jewishness” of education today.
