Message from the Director of the Master’s Program

Welcome to the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education!

Azrieli is the premier institution for training professional Jewish educators. Our strong research faculty is comprised of experts in curriculum, pedagogy, psychology, supervision, leadership, and cognition. Led by our dean, Dr. David Schnall, our professors provide a rigorous Masters program that is driven by theory while grounded in the real world of classroom teaching. Our Masters program is unique in that we apply world-class expertise in education to the subjects of Jewish education. Students leave our program with more than just generic teaching ability, but also with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to teach chumash, navi, tefila, Hebrew, gemara and halacha.

No matter your personal circumstance we have flexible options to meet your needs. Our diverse set of programs includes a traditional night program, a 1-year accelerated program, NY State teacher certification programs, and the Azrieli - REVEL Dual degree program. Across these options you are sure to find a program that suits your educational goals and personal schedule.

In addition, it is a point of personal pride to me that Azrieli is not only a Masters program, but also a community. Together, our students and faculty create a warm and welcoming learning environment; our students are active participants in the learning process, and our faculty is committed to helping each and every student grow as a teacher.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions about the program, any concerns you might have, or just to schmooze about Jewish education. I am, and will be, more than happy to help you in any way I can.
