Think Tank

In May 2010, Yeshiva University convened a cross section of the leading thinkers and practitioners in Experiential Jewish Education to help craft the Certificate Program, while helping to both define and advance the field.

The 24-hour retreat focused on:

  • Defining the field of Experiential Jewish Education
  • Suggesting a core curriculum for the Certificate Program
  • Developing options for track-specific studies
  • Determining the profile of potential students
  • Determining measurements of success

The following report summarizes the discussions that ensued and conclusions that were reached at the Think Tank Retreat. The report is a preliminary document that was used to develop the Certificate Program and it reflects the early stage of our planning.
