Teacher Education


The Center for Jewish Education (CJE) 
recognizes the need for professional development for the community’s Jewish day school, religious school and early childhood teachers. The CJE partners with local universities, professionals and our own Jewish educators to offer cutting edge courses that include both content and teaching methods. Previous classes have included Text Study Exploration, Early Signs of Autism, Brain Based Learning, Active Learning, Reggio Inspired Classrooms, Teaching Hebrew Reading and many more.


The CJE values the education and professional growth of our community's teachers and school directors. Scholarships of up to $500 are available for teachers and directors who qualify to attend professional educational conferences.
