Our Mission

The Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE) is a tax-exempt non-profit organization that was founded in 2001 to enhance and enrich the quality of Jewish education  throughout the United States.
We believe Jewish day school graduates should be prepared to succeed in an ever-changing global society and to reach their potentials in their future careers and in life.
To that end, CIJE seeks to upgrade the technology and programs available to Jewish day schools and yeshivot so that the education these schools provide is world-class.
CIJE is unique with our “hands-on” approach. We provide extensive teacher training and support, and our CIJE liaisons, mentors and other personnel regularly visit and communicate with our beneficiary schools to make sure that the programs and technology that we provide are fully realized.
We invite you to view our program pages and learn about the exciting things we are doing to revitalize Jewish day school learning!
