Pardes Center for Jewish Educators

The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators provides rigorous and comprehensive training for educators, combining classroom learning, student teaching, one-on-one coaching, and a robust induction program that supports alumni in their critical early years as teachers. In the past year, Pardes has expanded its educator training offerings, creating a Center for Jewish Educators. In addition to the Educators Program, the Center now offers training programs for the full spectrum of Jewish educational venues, including Hebrew schools, camps, youth groups, and Hillels.  Educating leaders at Pardes has a ripple effect, as they go on to inspire, educate, and motivate students and peers in their home communities. One hundred percent of Educators Program graduates are hired in teaching positions and contribute over the long term.  More than 90% of the educators trained by the Educators Program over the past 10 years remain in the field. This far exceeds the industry norm, of roughly half of novice teachers remaining in the field after two years.
