Abstract

The study’s aim was to identify the entrepreneurial process ten Jewish immigrant religious educators utilized when establishing innovative educational institutions, thereby affecting the Israeli religious education system. We utilized a social innovation approach to education entrepreneurship applying a qualitative analysis of life story interviews. The findings describe four phases that comprise the education entrepreneurial process: early personal development, critique of the current status quo, call to action, and the establishment of an innovative religious education organization.
