"In Modernizing Jewish Education in Nineteenth Century Eastern Europe, Mordechai Zalkin offers a new path through which the Eastern European traditional Jewish society underwent a rapid and significant process of modernization - the Maskilic system of education. Since the beginning of the nineteenth century a few local Jews, affected by the values and the principles of the European Enlightenment, established new private modern schools all around The Pale of Settlement, in which thousands of Jewish boys and girls were exposed to different disciplines such as sciences and humanities - a process which changed the entire cultural structure of contemporary Jewish society"--Provided by publisher.
