YU Launches Certificate Program in Experiential Jewish Education

Yeshiva University, with support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, has launched a Certificate Program in Experiential Jewish Education, open to emerging and practicing Jewish educators.

For the first cohort of this program, they are seeking passionate, creative and motivated individuals who want to impact the Jewish community by establishing or furthering their career in the field of Experiential Jewish Education.

The Certificate Program runs for one year during academic breaks, beginning in June 2011. Four cutting edge seminars – coupled with mentorship, networking and career placement opportunities – will prepare the cohort to transform the landscape of Experiential Jewish Education and Jewish identity in frameworks ranging from camps to campuses and classrooms to communities.
