Partners In Our Mission

The William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education derives strength from the wide spectrum of organizations and individuals that support our in-service programs. These partnerships allow us to contribute to and learn from ideas and best practices in the field, to complement other efforts of Jewish education, and to secure the resources critical to our operation.
