Description
This test of social skills was published by the Department of Synagogue and School Extension of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. It is entitled “Background of Jewish Students” and was written by Julius B. Maller. The test has five parts which include “Familiarity with Jewish Names,” “Knowledge of Jewish Customs,” “Knowledge of Jewish History,” “Judaism,” and “Background.” This test is of interest to researchers exploring the intersection of the history of psychology and the history of religion.
