I have often heard from teachers, students and parents that Jewish day school is a “bubble.” On the one hand, this term is used affectionately in that the bubble is a safe, warm space, with shared values and a shared outlook—a space where we gain strength as a school community.
But the bubble is also seen by many as dangerous. It can be a place that perpetuates insularity and can lead to narrow and skewed views. So much so that students often talk about becoming free and leaving the bubble.
