Jewish Education: Quiz is Proof That We Still Have a Long Way to Go


OK, so this is a video post by BuzzFeed that's meant to be funny, like all of their posts. Still, it's an eye opener. A group of young Jews were asked some very basic questions about Judaism in a game show format. Their responses show that either they were asleep in Hebrew school or their teachers weren't very effective.

Even worse, if you scroll down in the YouTube link to see the comments, some of them say that they live in Israel and didn't know many of the answers to these basic and somewhat superficial questions.

So, is this really funny? Probably not, but it's a wake-up call to Jewish parents that Jewish education should be a high priority in school and at home.

Enjoy!
