18x18 Executive Fellowship

Jewish communities in North America are on the brink of a new era. This moment offers the opportunity to challenge our assumptions and to reconsider the goals, content, and methods of Jewish education.

The 18×18 Executive Fellowship brings together eighteen executives overseeing educational strategy, policy, and programming at prominent North American Jewish organizations. 

Together, these executives will seek to respond to the shifting identities and interests of Jews in the 21st century; stimulate change within participating organizations; foster collaboration and innovation across the field; and create a collective vision and framework for Jewish education.

The 18X18 Framework

The 18×18 Executive Fellowship is based on the educational framework developed by Dr. Ben Jacobs and Dr. Barry Chazan: “18 Jewish Things a Young Jew Should Know, Care About, and Be Able to Do by Age 18.”
