“As the leader, so the generation; as the generation, so the leader.” – Talmud Yerushalmi, Arakhim 17a
More About JECELI
JECELI takes the stance that, in Jewish early childhood education, responding to the call of leadership requires a grounding in Jewish learning, reflective practice, and community building. With this foundation, leadership methods become meaningful, and can be used to meet goals that emerge from followers as well as from the leader. Problems that arise become opportunities rather than obstacles, and the school can become stronger and even more intentional. The organization of JECELI itself is transparent, so that the leadership skills, knowledge, and processes employed are made explicit, and can be used by participants to develop community in their own programs.
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, with the generous support of The Crown Family.
