Mission

The Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE) is a tax-exempt non-profit organization founded in 2001 to enhance and enrich the quality of Jewish education throughout the United States.

CIJE brings hands-on STEAM learning to more than 170 Jewish day schools and yeshivot across the United States impacting more than 45,000 students annually.

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 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 ensure that the programs and technology we provide are fully realized.

We invite you to learn about the exciting things we are doing to revitalize Jewish day school learning!
