Welcome to Azrieli

Yeshiva University’s Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration was established in 1983 in recognition of a major gift by the Montreal architect-builder and communal leader David J. Azrieli. Our students come from every part of the United States, as well as Canada, Israel and Europe, to attend this premier international center for the training of Jewish educators. Alumni serve at the helm of schools, educational agencies, universities and communal institutions all over the world.

Our mission is to train a cadre of Torah educators who will relay the rich knowledge and traditions of the Jewish heritage with warmth, joy and intelligence. Our student body includes teachers and administrators, regardless of institutional or denominational affiliation, who seek to enhance their skills and competencies while earning an advanced degree in Jewish education.

YU Hosts Israeli Students from Ein Prat

On Monday, June 3, 2019, Yeshiva University hosted a group of 40 students from Israel’s Ein Prat, The Academy for Leadership, a pre-military, leadership-focused center that attracts high school graduates from across religious, political and social spectrums.

The trip was organized by Rabbi Dr. Stu Halpern, senior adviser to the provost, as a way to increase the students’ knowledge and awareness of America’s Jewish community and give them a glimpse into the history and future of Yeshiva University.

They began their visit at the Office of the President, where they learned more about the University’s strong support of Israel as pictures of the country’s many prime ministers who have visited the campus over the years looked down on them from the walls. They were also given a brief overview of YU’s unique educational model and learned about the University’s distinctive academic offerings.
