 DeLeT fellows take courses that help them explore the specific context of Jewish day schools while preparing them to become general studies teachers and earn their preliminary California teaching credential.  Over the course of two summers and one academic year, Fellows take courses in pedagogy, curriculum, child development, educational technology, methods for teaching Math, Literacy, Social Studies, and Science, as well as courses in teaching Jewish texts, prayer, values, and Israel.

The DeLeT goal is to prepare modern, progressive Jewish day school teachers with the tools and experience to successfully transform children’s lives through learning. Participate in a mentored internship teaching in a Jewish day school in Los Angeles, San Diego, or the San Francisco Bay area while attending (on-site or by video-conference) weekly seminars. Attendees will also observe and teach 150 hours at a public school to strengthen engagement with the American education system and civic life. Upon completion of the fellowship, graduates earn a California Preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and a Certificate in Day School Teaching from HUC-JIR.
