Joseph H. Lookstein Center for Jewish Education
The Lookstein Center was established to promote the advancement of Jewish education in the Diaspora. In its programs, the Center draws upon the extraordinary and extensive Jewish and academic resources of Bar-Ilan University. The Center s permanent staff and team of consultants include some of the most outstanding and experienced former Diaspora educational leaders. These factors have enabled the Lookstein Center to provide programs that successfully combine the most current educational theory with practical application relevant to differing Jewish educational systems in communities worldwide. The Center focuses its programs on leadership, teacher and curriculum development. The Lookstein Center's unique understanding of Jewish education in both Israel and North America makes it an ideal partner to work in consonance with Diaspora schools, boards of Jewish education and other academic institutions in the design, development and implementation of innovative programs for Jewish education.
Since 1998, the Lookstein Center has focused on two major initiatives, including this website, that have the potential to impact globally on Jewish education through leadership development and worldwide interactive communication.
