My graduate education at Gratz has helped me define and articulate the work I have been doing for years, taking my game to a whole new level.
My courses in Jewish education and in educational administration at Gratz were exciting and thought-provoking. Although I had been a Jewish educational leader for many years, my studies at Gratz enriched my practice and motivated me to commit to ongoing learning.
I am so grateful for my experience at Gratz. I definitely feel that through Gratz I have gained command of the field of Jewish education, research, pedagogy, curriculum development, and school management.
Recipient of Gratz Institutional Scholarship
Gratz has pushed me to ask deeper questions and to keep searching for answers. It has reminded me of the complexity of life and society and has taught me to never stop learning.
Recipient of Leon Fisher Scholarship
The professors at Gratz were always thoroughly engaging and were a wonderful resource throughout my entire time in the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Masters program.
Recipient of Anna and Isidore Roseman Scholarship
My primary journey to Gratz college was strictly to get enough credits to get a raise. As time passed, I was able to work with and be supported by an excellent staff and wonderful teachers.
During my time as a Gratz Student during the past five years, I have learned from the top scholars in the field of Jewish Education, expanded my professional network and gained new skills that will propel my professional practice going forward.
I am so grateful to have studied at Gratz College. I had outstanding professors as they encouraged rigorous academic inquiry.
Gratz became more than just a learning community to me as my time here inspired me to grow as a Jewish Professional in ways I hadn't imagined.
Every class at Gratz was incredibly beneficial; there was honestly not a wasted second.
