Beginning in 2019, the Certificate in Jewish Leadership for Educators will provide senior-level educators the knowledge and skills necessary for them to serve in leadership capacities. The curriculum will prepare participants to meet educational challenges facing Jewish communities in the 21st century and to embrace growth opportunities in their careers and organizations.

The Certificate program is presented by Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in partnership with Northwestern University. Courses and workshops, taught by leading faculty from both institutions, will take place during two onsite seminars in Chicago, January 20-23 and March 24-27, 2019. Due to support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, the cost of the entire program – including travel and hotel accommodations – is $1,000.

This is a selective enrollment program that requires applicants to have five or more years of professional experience; a bachelor’s degree (with an advanced degree preferred); responsibility over educational programming including curricular oversight and management of staff or interns; experience with lay leaders or other outside representatives; and a strong commitment to developing and fulfilling their professional potential. The deadline for preferred admission is November 30, 2018.
