Message from the
Director of the Master’s Program
to the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education!
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.
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.
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.
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.
