Foster Lifelong Connections to Jewish Tradition
Advance Jewish Identity and Peoplehood
Spark Relationships with the Divine and Appreciation for Timeless Wisdom
Modern Jewish education still leaves much to be desired.
Too many day schools still employ educational practices that disenfranchise students. Our tradition is too precious to pass along through schools that do not embody our Jewish values.
It’s time to put the student experience front and center.
JEIC was created to seek out solutions that work. We’re a movement of Jewish day school educators, funders, influencers, and consumers committed to helping schools catalyze radical improvement through new approaches and initiatives.
Jumpstarting educational change through financial backing and consulting resources.
Providing curricular models and whole-child strategies to give direction for change.
Promoting new best practices for Jewish day schools through retreats and workshops.
JEIC is a bold initiative to improve the quality of Jewish education in day schools across North America. We pursue lasting school change through directed funding, philanthropic partnerships, impactful conferences, and innovative educational enterprises. To that end, we bring together educators, funders, influencers, and consumers to challenge day schools to achieve their mandate of optimizing student internalization of Jewish wisdom, identity, and decision making in the modern world.
