Created for Jewish day schools of all affiliations, the Day School Educator’s Challenge is intended to encourage disruptive innovation in the educational process. Applicants should design a unique program that can be implemented in an existing school – a program that can fundamentally change some aspect of Jewish education, inspiring students to learn, grow and connect. If selected, your program could receive a grant up to $50,000 and professional consultation over the next two years.

Applicants must propose programs that meet the following criteria:

  • Revolutionary: The program should be founded in Torah ideals instead of secular educational models.
  • Sustainable: The program should be practical and designed to thrive over time.
  • Accountable: The program should stay within budget and include measurable results.
  • Scalable: The program should be easily adaptable, so that other schools can replicate its successes.

Through the JEIC, the Mayberg Foundation will fund the proposals judged to have the most potential to transform Jewish education.
