The Impact of PEJE

We’re proud to have had such a strong impact on Jewish day schools, and their communities, all over North America. As the testimonials below amply demonstrate, the field is as happy to work with us as we were with them. May the collaborations continue!

PEJE is a first-class organization that has profoundly altered the Jewish educational landscape for the better. [You have set] a high standard of excellence and professionalism.

Thank you, PEJE, for your unparalleled devotion and passion to uplifting, strengthening, and in many ways transforming Jewish day school education. I know there is so much left to be done, but it is almost mind-boggling to think of where the field is today compared to where it was in 1996.

PEJE…was a guiding force that built a Jewish Day School in South Florida. Whether it be mentoring, grants, or conferences, Hochberg Prep has accomplished many of its accolades because of PEJE. I cannot thank you enough.

It has been a terrific experience working with [the PEJE] staff. You have created a very special organization and Los Angeles and the rest of the country has very much benefited from your vision, wisdom, and commitment to Jewish day schools.

It was only through my work with PEJE … that my professional practice as head of school transformed to a full understanding of Jewish school headship, to real leadership. PEJE understands that headship is, in the end, all about the ‘100-year’ vision for Jewish schools, life, and values.

I feel privileged to have been able to participate in learning opportunities that PEJE has created for lay and professional leaders in Jewish day schools. You have raised the level of expectations in Jewish education, and have helped to professionalize Jewish day school education in North America.

In the year after our coach’s visit, we enrolled our largest first grade in our school’s 65-year history. Subsequent years saw similarly sterling results. Though it has now been a few years since our work with our PEJE coach, we find ourselves quoting her often and are constantly referring back to what we learned with her. Our sessions with the coach are still paying major dividends as we attribute much of our success to those critical consulting sessions.

In a world where information comes at us from too many directions, the PEJE Facebook page has become a central place to find relevant content all in one place, connect with schools and individuals who are doing things you want to know about, and get ideas for communicating with your own audiences.
