Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik & Boston's Maimonides School By Seth Farber (201 Pages)Publisher: Brandeis University Press, 2004
Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, born in 1903 and scion of a preeminent Lithuanian Orthodox family, was one of the most towering intellectual figures of American Orthodoxy in the twentieth century. As the leader of centrist Orthodoxy in America for more than 50 years, his many accomplishments included his founding of the Maimonides School in Boston in 1937. He served as the intellectual and spiritual force behind the Maimonides School from its founding and was responsible for its innovative curriculum.
Synthesizing American educational methodologies and European Orthodox approaches to education, the Maimonides School became a prototype for an American Orthodox educational institution.
