Pardes Center for Jewish Educators


The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators (PCJE) offers a variety of new and established programs in Israel and North America to train, support and inspire day school Jewish studies teachers and experiential educators serving the Jewish community. The PCJE combines Pardes’s model for the study of Jewish text within a diverse community with its experience in teacher training, professional development and the creation of professional networks. The PCJE offers opportunities for current and aspiring Jewish educators ranging from half-day in-house seminars to a two-year teacher training program.

These programs include the Pardes Educators Program (PEP), a highly selective two-year teacher training program in Jerusalem, which is in its 18th cohort and has graduated 152 alumni. The program combines intensive text study at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies with a Masters of Jewish Education (MJEd) from Hebrew College. The program requires participants to make a minimum three-year commitment to teaching Jewish studies in a day school.
