More About JECELI

Our April seminar is taking place from the 24th-26th. See our blog for more information about the ideas that we will be exploring with the fantastic fellows of JECELI Chicago Cohort 2! You can meet the fellows themselves by clicking here. We really look forward to being with them again.

JECELI supports leaders and aspiring leaders by providing a grounding in Jewish learning, reflective practice, and community building. Leadership tools are used to promote collaborative work in the group and in the schools of the JECELI fellows. Challenges in the field are used as examples of opportunities to promote thoughtful, intentional changes that reference core Jewish values. To these ends, the organization of JECELI  is transparent, so that the leadership skills, knowledge, and processes that inform the program are those that can be used by participants to develop their own schools.

 

 

 

JECELI is a collaborative effort between The Jewish Theological Seminary, Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion, originating in consultation with the Bank Street College of Education, and operating with the generous support of The Crown Family.
