About

We Believe in vitalizing the Jewish community by improving the quality of teaching and learning in Jewish schools and other educating institutions.

Our Primary Goal is to develop leaders – “teachers of teachers” – who can produce significant change in teaching and learning through planning and implementing improved and creative professional development for teachers in their institutions, in their communities, and at the national level.

Our Graduates are making a difference. Founded in 1995 by the Mandel Foundation, MTEI is a pioneering program. To date a cadre of 250 senior educational leaders from over 25 communities have joined our ranks. Graduates include representatives of every denomination, working in a wide variety of settings.

Check out the exciting partnership with the University of Cincinnati,
