Fifteen Jewish early childhood education directors and master teachers completed their participation in the Jewish Early Childhood Education Leadership Institute (JECELI) on August 1, 2013. JECELI is a joint program of The Jewish Theological Seminary and Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, in consultation with the Bank Street College of Education.

JECELI members represent various types of Jewish communities across the country and all major denominations of Judaism. They learn skills in leadership, supervision and organizational administration; gain insight into adult development; and practice infusing Jewish thought and resources into all aspects of Jewish early childhood education. The program consists of distance learning and extensive mentoring, plus an orientation retreat and three in-person seminars (including one in Israel).
