Chaya R. Gorsetman: Educating in the Divine Image

Although recent scholarship has examined gender issues in Judaism with regard to text and ritual, there has been no in-depth study of how gender issues influence the education of Jewish children attending day schools. In Educating in the Divine Image, Chaya R. Gorsetman draws on lengthy research that reveals that Orthodox education continues to perpetuate gender inequities. She examines single-sex verses coed schooling, dress codes, sex education and other topics that mold identities and offers concrete resources and intelligent suggestions for transforming educational practices.

Chaya R. Gorsetman, is a Clinical Associate Professor of Education and Co-chair of the Education Department at Stern College for Women of Yeshiva University.
