In their new book, “Raising A+ Human Beings: Crafting a Jewish School Culture of Academic Excellence and AP Kindness,” Dr. Bruce Powell and Dr. Ron Wolfson explore the unique benefits of a learning environment fueled by Jewish values. I experienced the results firsthand, as a former student of de Toledo High School, which Dr. Powell created and ran. He and Dr. Wolfson, a professor of education at American Jewish University, collaborated to analyze de Toledo as a case study in Jewish education. The result is a customizable instruction manual on how organizations can replicate a “culture of wisdom and kindness,” combining academic achievement and personal growth. The two men will speak with Dr. Wendy Mogel on reimagining Jewish education April 6 at 6:30 ET via Zoom in a program sponsored by the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center. My interview with the authors has been edited for length and clarity.
