Since 2002, the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education has been advancing knowledge about teaching and learning and promoting thoughtful uses of research. Over the past 12 years we have hosted over 1,000 people at events, published more than 100 articles, presented at conferences all over the world and have several books published or in press.


Turn It and Turn It Again: Studies in the Teaching and Learning of Classical Jewish Texts” by Jon Levisohn and Susan Fendrick has been published by Academic Studies Press. This edited volume, emerging from the work of the Mandel Center's Initiative on Bridging Scholarship and Pedagogy in Jewish Studies, "deserves a place on the desk of every serious Jewish educator," according to Lee Shulman.

"A Theory of Havruta Learning" by Orit Kent has been awarded the 2013 Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE) Research Award.

"Helping School Leaders Help New Teachers: A Tool for Transforming School-Based Induction" by Sarah Birkeland and Sharon Feiman-Nemser is among the top 10 most frequently downloaded pieces in 2012 from The New Educator published by the American Educational Research Association (AERA).

The Center's lunch seminar schedule offers a variety of speakers and topics. > Learn more.
