for Education Directors and Youth Directors

Thank you for your interest in the Matan Institute. Over the past 7 years (and 9 cohorts!) we have had the honor of working with Jewish professionals who bring with them a wide range of experience, both in Jewish education and in disability inclusion. Because this program is specifically tailored to each cohort, and each participant, we are able to meet you where you are on your path to full inclusion.

Join hundreds of your colleagues who have embarked on this journey, and have become change agents in the world of Jewish inclusion.
