The Jewish Education Project, a New York-based agency and beneficiary of UJA-Federation of New York, works closely with educational leadership in day schools, congregations, early childhood settings, teen programs and beyond to spark and spread innovative approaches that expand the reach and increase the impact of Jewish education for children, teens, and families. We offer training, thought leadership, and partnerships, and we touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and their families each year. With a focus on serving New York (the five boroughs of NYC, Westchester, and Long Island), The Jewish Education Project is also engaged in a number of national initiatives supported by major foundations.

The Jewish Education Project is a national leader in developing and training field professionals in innovative design strategies that engage teens in Jewish life.
