Synagogues, Summer Camps, Federations, Hillels, JCCs, day schools, city-wide, regional, national, and international organizations...wherever Jewish education is happening you will find Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion School of Education alumni.
Our newly-unified Alumni Association, representing all the education programs offered at HUC-JIR, is committed to building and developing leaders to serve and support our colleagues and friends who work in Jewish organizations around the world.
You are invited to learn more about the work we do, stay connected, and get involved as we support our alumni, the SOE, and HUC-JIR.
The mission of the School of Education Alumni Association (SOEAA) is to create a community among the graduates of the SOE that addresses the on-going needs of alumni, the SOE, and HUC-JIR.
The SOEAA focuses its efforts on the pillars of kehillah (building community), kavod (honoring our alumni), limud (providing opportunities for study and professional learning), t’micha (providing financial support to the College-Institute), and l’dor vador (engaging the next generation).
To achieve these goals, the SOEAA communicates regularly with the HUC-JIR community and collaborates with the SOE and its faculty, HUC-JIR administration, and the Alumni Leadership Council.
