Lisette Zaid, Program Manager for new Chicago outpost of San Francisco-based UpStart "The MAJPS program turned what I thought was just a job at a Jewish organization into a career helping my community thrive. I have never felt more committed to Jewish communal service."

The Spertus Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies (MAJPS) program brings a diverse group of Jewish professionals together to study the cutting-edge issues in contemporary Jewish life, advancing their career opportunities and enhancing the contributions they bring to Jewish organizations and institutions. Students graduate having grown personally and professionally, having cultivated critical leadership skills, built strong communal links, and gained real insight into how to meet Jewish community needs.
