The Rabbi Jan Katzew Scholar Endowment Fund

Donate Now

This dedicated fund was established on April 24, 2006 on the occasion of the 50th birthday of Rabbi Jan Katzew, who at that time was the Director of Lifelong Learning at the URJ. Rabbi Katzew has been the driving force in the establishment and growth of the ECE-RJ, as well as in raising the status of all professionals involved in early education within the Reform community. Currently, Rabbi Katzew is Professor of Jewish Education at HUC-JIR in Cincinnati, OH.

It subsidizes the expenses of renowned scholars to ensure ongoing high quality continuing education for educators at our Conferences and Kallot.
