CJE Application Form

Dear Fellow JEA Member,

On behalf of the Professional Development Committee of the Jewish Educators Assembly, it gives me great pleasure to announce the creation of a certification program for the title of Conservative Jewish Educator (CJE). The title of CJE is intended to recognize attaining a standard of achievement in the field of Conservative Jewish education and stand as a mark of honor and distinction. Earning the CJE is based on educational experience, academic study, and a demonstration of commitment to the goals of the JEA.


The goal of this certification is to recognize those educators who have achieved the highest professional standards of our organization and to encourage ongoing professional development. Certificates will be presented at the annual JEA Conference. Applications for the title of CJE are to be sent to the chair of the Professional Development Committee and may be submitted at any time. Attached is a statement of requirements for the title of CJE and an application form. Members who believe that they have met the spirit of the qualifications of this award are encouraged to make an appeal to the committee for how their attainments can be considered an alternative path to this title.


We encourage all of our members who qualify for this certification to complete and submit the application. Those who do not yet qualify are encouraged to set a goal of meeting these standards and earning the recognition inherent in this title.

B’Shalom,
Dr. harvey Raben, Chairperson, CJE Title Granting Commission
