Can we unearth new Jewish ways of teaching and learning that will allow us to be more thoughtful, creative, and relevant practitioners?
M² invites outstanding Jewish educators to explore, design, test, and produce new pedagogies in a paid eight-month fellowship. Fellows will research and develop Jewish pedagogies that engage the emotional, spiritual, physical, or intellectual realms to address today’s challenges.
Research and develop a pedagogy that is rooted in Jewish practice and relevant today.

After the completion of the Jewish Pedagogies Research Fellowship, fellows will share their work with the larger Jewish educational field during an online symposium that they will help develop. Please find information about our previous symposium here.
This program is open to Jewish Educators across the globe, able to meet during mid-day ET.
The fellowship is designed for you to take time to reflect on yourself as an educator. You will also be working with the faculty members, who are immersed in the world of pedagogy and can help you become even more articulate about educational practices and pedagogies.
Fellows will receive $5,000 over the course of the fellowship. Half of the stipend will be paid upon submission of the research paper and the other half after the submission of the resource.
