Lifshitz College of Education ("Michlelet Lifshitz" - מכללת ליפשיץ - המכללה האקדמית הדתית לחינוך) is a religious teacher training college in Jerusalem, Israel. The school credo is "integrating modernity and Jewish life."[1]

History[edit]

Mizrachi Teachers' Training College was established in Jerusalem in 1921 by Rabbi Moshe Ostrovsky-Hame'iri and Eliezer Meir Lifshiz. It was the first teachers' training college for national religious teachers in the Land of Israel. After Lifshitz's death in 1946, the college was renamed in his honor.[2]

The college is approved by the Council for Higher Education in Israel and offers a range of programs, including fully accredited Bachelor of Education and Master of Education degrees. It conducts research on the methodology and philosophy of Jewish education; it also operates the Lifshitz Center for Jewish Education in the Diaspora.[3]
