Peter Menkin of The Church of England Newspaper conducted significant interviews with three Rabbis on the topic of religious education. These interviews are unique due to the new success of Internet education and its use in Jewish learning and the teaching of the Torah, as well as Orthodox Jewish adult education.
Rabbi Yitzchok Alderstein, a warm and learned Rabbi with special experience in interfaith matters, was spontaneous and sometimes amusing with his kind sense of humor. He asked at one time why Christians wanted to know about Orthodox Jewish education. I replied that this was part of a way to get a sense of religious education in general, and also to foster a relationship with the Jewish community through understanding and communication. There is no doubt, also, that many people, regardless of religious persuasion or outlook, will find this an interview of interest, especially those of the Jewish faith.
