American Jewish University (AJU) announced that its School for Jewish Education and Leadership (SJEL) is launching a doctorate in education (EdD) in Jewish early-childhood educational leadership. It will be the first program of its kind in the United States

To be delivered via distance learning beginning this fall, the degree represents a major step forward in SJEL’s strategic initiatives in further developing the field of Jewish early-childhood education.

Accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), the program will focus on scholarship and teaching within the field of Jewish early-childhood education. It will equip educators with cutting-edge research opportunities, advanced knowledge and skills to impact the learning and growth of young children.

“We are thrilled to receive approval for our EdD degree in early childhood educational leadership,” said dean Rachel Lerner. “Our program is designed to prepare students to become leaders in their field, impacting the lives of young children for generations to come. This is an important step in the development of our early childhood portfolio, and we look forward to contributing important research to the field and sharing it with the community.”

Early-childhood education is one of the most important entry points for young families into the Jewish community. The demand for professionals in the field has grown tremendously, and AJU’s program will work to fill the current gap in advanced research and methodology.
