More About JECELI
JECELI engages selected new and aspiring directors in intensive Jewish learning, inquiry and reflective practice, leadership development, and community culture building. Jewish learning provides the foundation for all of the areas that are studied. Participants work on discovering meaning in texts and ritual; understanding leadership and relationships through Jewish perspectives; fostering spiritual development; integrating Israel into the life of the early childhood program; and facilitating the development of identity. JECELI is a collaborative effort between The Jewish Theological Seminary, Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion, in consultation with the Bank Street College of Education, with the generous support of the Jim Joseph Foundation.
