Alumni & Career Placement:
Become an Educational Leader

Our graduate education programs combine academic rigor, field experience, and a network of contacts to help our students deepen their practice and grow their career. Our alumni work all over the United States, having been prepared to lead, transform, and elevate Jewish learning for a pluralistic world.

My work as a leader in the Jewish community, in both supplementary and day schools, and now, as a director of an overnight Jewish camp, was guided by my studies at Hebrew College. The professors encouraged me to think deeply about living a rich Jewish life and, in turn, I work to inspire a Jewish connection in the communities I work with. I look back at my time at Hebrew College with complete admiration and am thankful for all I learned and the connections I made as a student and as a professional.

Alachua Nazarenko, IFJE Cert`18, Program Coordinator and Development Associate, Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life, Jackson, MS Alumni Story

Hebrew College has distinguished itself as a trailblazer in supporting the needs of Jews of all backgrounds through its development of the Interfaith Families Jewish Engagement (IFJE) concentration, and I am proud to be a graduate of the first cohort.

Shoshana Zaritt, MJEd`17, Director of Junior and Senior Programs at Gann Academy, Waltham, MA Alumni Story

I am an older student so I really stuck to online classes at the College in my first years and only reluctantly took on the challenge of online classes. To my great surprise, I really found the learning platform to be quite satisfying. I did get to know fellow online students through conversational threads and some hevruta learning. I want to particularly note Professor Edward Breuer’s course “Great Jewish Thinkers: Maimonides, Spinoza, Mendelssohn” which has quite challenging content and how skillfully Professor Breuer led us through understanding and discussing the material in an online format. He was precise in how we needed to study to prepare ourselves for the weekly online exchange and his participation guided, redirected, but did not interrupt the flow of ideas and thoughts between the students

Ben Einsidler, MJEd/MAJS`15, Eser`13, Toshiba Teacher, Jewish Community Day School, Boston, MA Alumni Story

Hebrew College gave me the skills and tools I’ve needed in order to grow and hone my own teaching practice, as well as learn more about our history and tradition than I thought possible. Hebrew College showed me that Judaism is more deep and diverse than I could imagine and that Judaism and Jewish education are both accessible in myriad ways throughout one’s life.

Julie Zorn, MJEd`17, Director of Education and Lifelong Learning, Chadash Community Hebrew Academy, Canton, OH, with her teacher and Associate Dean of Shoolman School of Jewish Education at Hebrew College, Dr. Deborah Skolnick Einhorn. Alumni Story

The faculty at Hebrew College have each provided extraordinary course work and materials that I know I will refer to again and again throughout my career. Through their efforts, I have seen my own growth since I began this program three years ago. Each of you have stretched my abilities and have shown me that I am always capable of more. For this, I am forever grateful.
