Institue for Teaching Jewish Adults
The HUC-JIR Institute for Teaching Jewish Adults was established in 2002 to offer opportunities for Jewish professionals, particularly HUC-JIR alumni, to enhance their skills as adult educators.
At present, the Institute's priority is to assess the current state of adult Jewish learning in Reform congregations and beyond, in order to learn more about the skills and knowledge needed by professionals to create compelling adult Jewish learning experiences. The implications for the education of current students and the continuing education of alumni will be explored. In 2004-2005, an ITJA Adult Jewish Learning Advisory Committee will meet to carry out this inquiry and suggest potential initiatives to support relevant adult education training programs.
