“M2 is an incredible accomplishment that has succeeded in not only daring to ask the questions of what makes for transformative and profound Jewish learning, education and experience, but has crystallized and systematized the methodology so as to turn good educators into outstanding ones, and make experiential Jewish education accessible, teachable and, above all, reproduceable.”
M² is dedicated to advancing experiential Jewish education – a field dedicated to the development of individual and communal Jewish identity and agency.
Our mission is to help educators and organizations design meaningful educational experiences by offering them training and research grounded in academic theories, Jewish thought, customized educational approaches and cutting-edge methodologies.
Experiences Shape Lives.
People grow when encountering and grappling with powerful experiences that truly matter.
And some people are fortunate enough to create them.

M2… allowed us to better identify areas for growth and ensure that our work is based on concrete and sustainable pedagogic and methodological principles.”
“As someone with nine years of experience as Jewish Chaplain at Brandeis University, and upon entering a new position at Combined Jewish Philanthropies, I was looking to hone my craft. What I got at the M² Senior Educators Cohort was a revamp of my entire philosophy of Jewish education and a stellar group of new colleagues.”
