This past summer, Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future Certificate Program in Experiential Jewish Education graduated its second group of students and inaugurated a third. The program is one of the few to focus on the unique role experiential Jewish education plays in the transmission of Jewish values and traditions. It arms practitioners with research, methodology and skills in order to increase their effectiveness on the job.

L.A. residents Melissa Hertwig, a program associate for BBYO Pacific Coast Region; Sara Smith, a teacher at Yeshiva University of Los Angeles (YULA) High School for Girls; Aaron Levi, Diller Teen Fellows Program coordinator at the Bureau of Jewish Education of San Francisco; and Adam Eilath, teacher at the Kehilla Jewish High School in Palo Alto, are program graduates.

YU’s Certificate Program in Experiential Jewish Education is made possible through the generous support from the Jim Joseph Foundation. “The Foundation believes that professional development for dynamic experiential Jewish educators is a worthwhile investment, and programs like the Certificate in EJE are important for the growth and development of the field of Jewish education,” said Dawne Bear Novicoff, senior program officer at Jim Joseph.
