School Notes:

  • Over the past five decades, the American Jewish University has flourished into a nationally recognized educational institution—one that fully reflects and embraces the rich diversity of American Jewish life. This sense of inclusiveness dates back to the university’s founding days in 1947, when Dr. Mordecai Kaplan, the author of “Judaism as a Civilization,’’ conceived of an institution that would embody as many forms of Jewish expression as possible.
  • Our programs includes College of Arts and Sciences, University’s graduate programs, Master of Arts in Jewish Communal Studies, Master of Arts in Education, The Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.
  • College of Arts and Sciences Serious scholarship and innovative curricula place this academic program among the most vibrant in the nation. Our MBA and Master of Arts programs are ably training professionals for leadership roles at a variety of cultural, social service, educational and religious institutions. Master of Arts in Jewish Communal Studies: This new program was created to train graduates for positions within the professional leadership of the Jewish communal institutions.
