Mazal Tov Class of 2019!


From  Misgav north of Haifa and south to Beer Sheva 73 graduatesof Schechter’s MA program proudly walked the stage at ceremonies on May 28th.  These newly minted alumni come from a wide range of backgrounds and careers: teachers and principals, a hospital chaplain, a startup founder, municipal employees, a pharmacist, army officers, a dance teacher and JCC staffers.

Shlomit Miron, a creative writing instructor and the graduation student speakers shared this about her Schechter experience:

“At Schechter I learned Judaism in all its variations and in ways I had never learned before. As a secular woman I think of my friends who are turned off by the word Judaism.  I imagined them beside me in my classes. I imagined them understanding something they previously hadn’t. They open their hearts to a rich heritage full of contradictions and complexity – that is rich, wise, creative and new.  This is how we must learn about Judaism.”


Schechter’s MA program in Jewish Studies offers a wide array of study tracks that allow students to specialize in a range of areas including Jewish communal service, Israel Studies, Women and Gender Studies, Jewish Art and many more.
