More About JECELI

This July, we are having a 1-day seminar at the Garfield Conservatory, with a focus on mindfulness and its role in Jewish early childhood education. See our blog to learn more about the directions that our explorations may take us. You can meet the fellows themselves by clicking here.

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.
