The Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE) is a tax-exempt non-profit organization that was founded in 2001 to enhance and enrich the quality of Jewish education throughout the United States. We believe Jewish day school graduates should be prepared to succeed in an ever-changing global society and to reach their potentials in their future careers and in life. To that end, CIJE seeks to upgrade the technology and programs available to Jewish day schools and yeshivot so that the education these schools provide is world-class.
