Pedagogy and Impact: The SJCS Master's Thesis

By Bruce A. Phillips, Sarah Bunin Benor

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2009

Since its opening, the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's School of Jewish Communal Service (SJCS) has required its students to complete a master's thesis. This final project allows students to explore deeply a topic of interest to them and to share their findings with Jewish professionals already engaged with that topic. Theses in the past decades have included original studies of segments of the Jewish population, analyses of interfaith dialogue groups, and evaluations of Jewish service agencies as the SJCS itself. Ultimately, these theses not only train students to become Jewish professionals but also make a significant impact on the landscape of Jewish communal service around the world.

(This double issue of the Journal of Jewish Communal Service is dedicated to SJCS, the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's School of Jewish Communal Service).
