The UnitEd Project & Herzog Global
UnitEd is a joint venture between Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs and philanthropists from the Jewish world, managed under the leadership of Herzog College.
The initiative was designed to strengthen students’ Jewish identity, their involvement in their local communities, and their connection to Israel, by empowering educators.
Based upon a deep commitment to dialogue and cooperation within the field, the initiative offers a wide range of resources for Jewish educators: 1:1 training and coaching processes, a rich digital content platform with new curriculums, a virtual campus for professional development for Jewish teachers, conferences, round tables and more, so as to constantly contribute to the advancement of Jewish education.
