21st-Century Jewish Leader

Chris Herman (above) is now Coordinator of Pittsburgh's Diller Teen Fellows Program, an international leadership experience for Jewish teens.

He developed his leadership skills through the Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies (MAJPS) program, a world-class, career-boosting Jewish educational opportunity first piloted in Chicago in 2008.


The Chicago-area MAJPS program has proven to be so impactful for graduates and the organizations they serve that the program is now sought after by Jewish communities worldwide. Today, citywide cohorts are being offered around the US and national cohorts are underway in Canada and Israel.

Do you work for a Jewish organization? Want to work in the Jewish community? Have staff members who deserve an opportunity to grow as Jewish professionals? The next Chicago MAJPS cohort begins this fall. Applications being accepted now>
