Presented by Spertus Institute in partnership with Northwestern University, the Certificate in Jewish Leadership enhances the professional abilities of Jewish leaders.

Traditionally, Jewish leadership programs have focused either on management skills or Jewish literacy. In this program, leadership training is taught within a distinctively Jewish context.

Together with a cohort of experienced colleagues serving Jewish communities worldwide, participants learn to:

  • Strengthen their own leadership styles
  • Communicate and collaborate within and across organizations, even in difficult situations
  • Manage change
  • Inspire excellence
  • Articulate and achieve goals

To make participation available to participants worldwide, the program is presented through a combination of online content and onsite seminars at the Spertus Institute campus in Chicago (one seminar in the fall, one in the spring). Taught by senior Northwestern University and Spertus Institute faculty, the program concludes with one-on-one mentoring sessions with established community leaders. 

The full cost of the program is $2,500. This includes the Leadership Assessment and Mentor Match, but does not include travel or accommodations. Scholarship opportunities may be available for qualified employees of Jewish organizations. Inquire to find out more.

This is a selective enrollment program. Applicants should have five or more years of professional experience, a bachelor's degree or the equivalent, and a strong commitment to developing and fulling their professional potential.
