The Jewish Education Project

Leveraging the success and 100 year legacy of the Board of Jewish Education New York-SAJES, The Jewish Education Project pioneers new approaches in Jewish education for every age.  We recognize that as society changes, the way we educate must adapt right along with it. 

We believe that every Jewish family should have a path to affordable, accessible, and inspiring Jewish education for their children.  We connect forward-thinking educators to powerful ideas and resources so we can create new models that change how, what, and where people learn. 
Together with our partners, we’re transforming Jewish education for today’s ever-changing world and helping to shape the future of the Jewish people.

The Jewish Education Project is a beneficiary of UJA Federation
