Dear students, faculty and administration of HUC-JIR,
As you may have heard, the HUC-JIR School of Jewish Communal Service is now the
HUC-JIR School of Jewish Nonprofit Management (SJNM).
A new name, but providing the same outstanding education in Jewish professional leadership.
For more than 40 years, we were the School of Jewish Communal Service, so why change the name now? We certainly still believe in the “calling” to serve the Jewish people. Indeed that is the quintessential quality we look for in our students, as the attached article makes clear (http://ejewishphilanthropy.com/introducing-the-school-of-jewish-nonprofit-management/).
As HUC media advisory notes:
When you get a chance, take a look at our new website at www.huc.edu/SJNM. I think you will get a good sense of our vision and programs. If you know a prospective candidate, tell them about our program or tell us about them. And if you are a current rabbinical, cantorial, or education student who wants to gain a credential in Jewish nonprofit management while you are studying at HUC, please give me a call (213-765-2118) or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are proud to be part of the HUC-JIR community, and we look forward to continuing to contribute to our common mission of excellence in Jewish professional leadership.
Richard A. Siegel
Director, HUC-JIR School of Jewish Nonprofit Management
