Continuing Jewish Education Program
The IISHJ is committed to providing continuing Jewish education for the movement of Secular Humanistic Judaism. For those students who desire a more formal acknowledgement of their educational achievements, the Institute offers a certificate in Jewish Education with the completion of 6 credit hours of weekend seminars (2 required, 4 elective). The required weekend seminars of the Continuing Jewish Education program are Roots of Secular Humanistic Judaism (SHJ 100) and Basic Ideas of Secular Humanistic Judaism (SHJ 110).
Individual communities may also choose to make the Jewish education program part of an adult bar/bat mitzvah program.
