Hack Jewish Education

Behrman House and MindCET are launching a new pilot accelerator program designed to jump-start the creation of new, Jewish educational technology. Supported by a grant from AVI CHAI, the program will identify and provide support to a North American-based development team with outstanding ideas to create market-ready Jewish ed-tech products. This support will include one month in Israel hosted by MindCET Workshops this January working with developers; mentoring hosted by Behrman House to focus on the Jewish educational market; access to professional design, coding, art and other tech development talent; opportunities to work with Israeli tech development start-ups both remotely and in person; and access to Jewish education community for testing and feedback throughout the program.
The pilot accelerator sets out to tackle challenges in the field such as the high initial cost of development of games and educational software compared with the limited size of the “market” for Jewish education. The program leverages MindCET’s expertise in technology incubation and development and Behrman House’s knowledge of the needs of North American Jewish educators and experience through its JLearning Labs unit with Jewish ed tech development.
