Become an Educational Leader
Advance Your Career
We offer a graduate degree in Jewish Education to help educators prepare to lead, transform and elevate Jewish learning for a pluralistic world. We focus on helping students develop critical skills including:
- The ability to become changemakers in their practice of Jewish Education in a rapidly changing educational landscape.
- A deep understanding of the complexity of Jewish life through a pluralist approach to Judaism.
Learn the frameworks of subject-based pedagogy for teaching Torah, rabbinic literature, Jewish history, Jewish thought, and cultural literacy while exploring educational theories as a means to refine a personal vision of Jewish Education.

Part of the beauty of the pluralistic program is that students are from all walks of life and everybody is able to bring in his or her own perspectives and background into the conversation. It’s a totally natural 21st century mode of learning.

Andrea Kasper, MJEd`07, Head of School at Solomon Schecter Day School of Greater Hartford, CT
In my experience over the years as a teacher, coach and head of a Jewish Day School, I can attest to the value of hiring educators with a Masters of Jewish Education. Not only do teachers with a Hebrew College MJEd have a solid understanding of educational theories and practice, but they also bring with them a commitment to social justice, to building meaningful, sustainable, and loving communities of learners, and to honoring both tradition and innovation. This value-based approach to education is woven into the DNA of the MJEd program.
Expand Your Professional Network
Because our graduate students work closely together as a cohort, they not only become an “online community” of learning and support, but they also develop a career-long professional network with each other and Hebrew College graduate alumni across the world.
