Professional Development

Lifelong learning is a hallmark of Jewish education. Educators, school professionals and lay leaders – working on behalf of Jewish day school students – gain from ongoing professional development. It inspires our self-reflection. It broadens our knowledge base. It allows us to raise the bar for excellence in Jewish education.

Whether you are a teacher, administrator, support coordinator or a lay leader – the Institute offers online and onsite professional development targeted to meet your needs. Areas of professional development include but are not limited to: leadership training, planning and performance improvement, social-emotional skill building, enhancing Jewish studies, differentiated instruction and interactive classroom media.
