Maalot Educational Network

Overview

Maalot Educational Network (formerly the Zaidner Institute), an NCCRS member since October 2010, was founded in 1984 to meet the changing needs of contemporary Jewish women and is an affiliate of Neve Yerushalayim. 

Maalot provides college-level, post-secondary, career-oriented course work. The student body consists of young Jewish men and women, as well as adult learners with substantial prior Judaic and secular education. Maalot affiliates are located in cities where there are large Orthodox Jewish populations such as  New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Canada, Israel and Switzerland.

The mission of the school is to provide men and women in  North America, Europe and Israel  the opportunity to pursue advanced Jewish studies, while at the same time achieving a level of secular education enabling entry into graduate school and  the job market. Maalot also strives to meet the needs of adults who must balance their desire for educationally valid study with family obligations.

Opening in 1984, Maalot first offered courses in Computer Science and Business, in addition to Judaic Studies.  Soon after, programs in Education, Psychology, Graphic Arts, and Speech Pathology were added. Later, the prerequisite Science courses for the fields of Medicine, Nursing, Occupational, Physical Therapy and PA were developed. Recently, courses in Cybersecurity as specially designed Proficiency Examinations were added to further expand professional opportunities.

All courses taught at Maalot offer a full 60 minutes of site-based instruction, instead of the academic hour of 50 minutes. Some of the courses may also be offered in hybrid format with a combination of interactive and site based lectures. All courses are taught by qualified instructors, use current college textbooks and require post-secondary level research and student outcomes.

SPECIAL NOTE 3/24/20: 

Because of safety concerns and travel restrictions related to COVID-19, NCCRS has deferred the scheduled evaluation of this organization’s courses, examinations or programs. The purpose of the evaluation was to perform the 5-year revalidation of credit recommendations. NCCRS has approved a temporary extension of current credit recommendations where necessary. NCCRS will make administrative decisions on a case-by-case basis so that students are not deprived of using their credit recommendations. Please contact NCCRS with specific questions or concerns: NCCRS@nysed.gov or 518-486-2070.

Students and admissions representatives please note: NCCRS does not provide transcripts. Transcript requests and inquiries should be directed to the organization offering the courses, examinations or apprenticeship. See the Source of Official Student Records in the sidebar near the top right side of this page.
