NEW YORK (JTA) – Northwestern University and the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies have partnered to create a Certificate in Jewish Leadership program.
The program of the university’s School of Continuing Studies and the Chicago institute is geared toward emerging leaders of nonprofit organizations. It will teach participants to improve leadership and communication skills, articulate personal visions, and plan for the future through a Jewish lens.
The aim is to maximize the effectiveness of Jewish leaders through religious and professional contexts.
“This innovative program will provide Jewish leaders the opportunity to enhance their professional careers in the context of their personal faith,” said Northwestern President Morton Schapiro.
Northwestern and Spertus faculty will participate in the program.
