Our Mission

The World Center for Jewish Education was founded upon the belief that the continuity of the Jewish nation and its future generations is firmly dependent upon promoting an increased investment in strong and strategic approaches to Jewish education.

We recognize that questions of Jewish identity and practice remain a source of debate and at times even tension within our community. Yet we also believe that the best way to encourage Jewish unity is by educating Jewish students with an appreciation for their heritage, their culture and their history, so that they can positively impact our shared Jewish future.

WCJE works to identify, build and deliver highly-professional, innovative materials and programs on subjects of Jewish interest. Our resource hub also delivers enrichment courses for educators, to help them use the latest techniques to transform their teaching into an enriching, inspiring and memorable experience that will mold a stronger Jewish identity for their students. Through its educational tourism division, WCJE provides custom-designed educational trips to Israel, led by professional tour guides and experienced educators.

WCJE does not seek to promote any particular agenda, stream or belief within the multifaceted Jewish world. We acknowledge and respect the broad spectrum of Jewish belief and practice, and appreciate that multiple voices and messages define how Jewish identity is best embraced.

WCJE partners with a wide range of Jewish organizations and companies across the religious spectrum, as well as hundreds of Jewish schools and community leaders around the world. We help them to enhance their investment in Jewish Studies, the study of Hebrew, and affinity with Israel. We believe that these are the cornerstone of a quality Jewish education for the next generation.
