The University of Judaism plans to launch a Jewish version of Teach for America, an 11-year-old program that recruits recent college graduates to teach in low-income communities. Details and funding are still under discussion, but the Los Angeles-based university would recruit and train Jewish college students and alumni of the Birthright Israel program to teach in North American Hebrew schools and Jewish day schools, which currently face severe teacher shortages.
