Legacy Heritage Instructional Leadership Institute

The Legacy Heritage Instructional Leadership Institute, established at the Melton Research Center for Jewish Education of The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), works with schools from diverse denominations to promote an outcomes-based approach to the study of Tanakh (Bible) and Rabbinics. The program is grounded in detailed standards and benchmarks for Tanakh study. Judaic studies faculties learn to apply these standards and benchmarks by participating in three instructional leadership institutes and ongoing coaching from specially trained educators. These opportunities aid schools in developing curriculum, mentoring faculty, and leading instructionally-focused meetings, as well as implementing an outcomes-based approach that sets clear expectations and enhances student learning.
There have been 13 cohorts since the program launched under its original name, the Jewish Day School Standards and Benchmarks Project.
