The mission of the Mandel Center for Jewish Education is to increase the power of JCCs as environments for Jewish living and learning, thereby strengthening the Jewish community. It does this through Jewish educational leadership training programs (Kivunim, Lekhu Lakhem, JELI, etc.), creation of educational materials (TAG, JCC Journeys), and providing professional development for the field.
