Upgrade Your Career in Jewish Education!

Take your career in Jewish Education to the next level with a prestigious MA in Education specializing in Jewish Education from the Melton Centre for Jewish Education at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The 1-year Master’s degree blended program consists of two distance learning (online) semesters and a 6-weeks intense semester in Israel. This provides educators with the flexibility of studying and earning an MA degree specializing in Jewish and Israel Education without interrupting their work-life.

The MA Jewish Education for the different types of Jewish educators around the world

With the changing reality of Jewish life in the Diaspora, the Melton Centre at the Hebrew University is moving in new directions to adapt and to offer solutions to strengthen Jewish education in communities abroad.

This MA Education specializing in Jewish Education graduate degree program is designed for educators in formal or informal frameworks. Educators interested in Jewish education and its dialogue with theory and practice in Jewish education and teaching of Jewish texts, and educational philosophy will find the curriculum inspiring and highly relevant to their field.

The MA Education for Busy Educators

Catering to the busy schedules of students, studies will integrate on-site and distance learning elements, where two semesters are taught online and six weeks are spent on-campus for an intense summer semester in Jerusalem. While the program may be completed within one year, students may choose a lighter study load and extend studies over more distance learning semesters.

Foremost, the main advantage of this program is that Jewish educators unable to spend a long period of time in Jerusalem now can study with the Melton Centre faculty and enjoy the unique academic resources of the Hebrew University.

In addition, a one-year MA degree in Education specializing in Jewish Education from the Hebrew University gives graduates a competitive edge in academic level and prestige.
