"The Hornstein Program transformed the field of Jewish Communal Service. Today, there is hardly a Jew anywhere in the United States who has not benefited from the work of Hornstein alumni in Jewish community centers, schools, synagogues, social service agencies, and related institutions. Across North America, in Israel, and around the world, Hornstein alumni are working to strengthen the bonds of Jewish communal life and to promote a better future for Jews everywhere.”

Our Mission

The Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership Program trains students to meet the challenges of a fast-changing Jewish community. We prepare the next generation of Jewish leaders for service in North American and international Jewish organizations.

Jewish leaders of the 21st century must be able to understand trends, frame issues, and apply professional skills in new and creative ways. To address these challenges, Hornstein offers students top-quality scholarship, intensive professional training and carefully selected field experiences in graduate-level dual-degree programs.
