Spertus Institute's MA in Jewish Professional Studies (MAJPS) program is a world-class, career-boosting Jewish educational opportunity. First piloted in Chicago nearly ten years ago, the program advances the professional skills and Jewish knowledge of those working for and with the Jewish community. 

MAJPS has proven to be so influential for graduates and their organizations that citywide cohorts are offered around the US and international cohorts are offered in Canada and Israel.

Do you work for a Jewish organization? Want to work in the Jewish community? Have staff members you would like to see grow as Jewish professionals?
