NEWTON CENTRE — Hebrew College has received three grants totaling more than $500,000 to fund professional development programs and initiatives at the Rabbinical School and the Shoolman Graduate School of Jewish Education.

The largest of these grants — for $290,000 over three years — was awarded by Bloomberg Philanthropies to the Rabbinical School.

The Shoolman School received a $200,000, three-year award from the Legacy Heritage Fund to establish the Legacy Heritage Midcareer Fellowship Program at Hebrew College, and a $20,000 award from The Covenant Foundation to create a play-based curriculum that introduces young children to the notion of God and spiritual wonder.

The Bloomberg grant, given in honor of Rabbi Suzanne Offit, a 2009 Rabbinical School graduate, will support the Rabbinical School in significantly enhancing the three core elements of its clinical-training program.

The Legacy Heritage award will subsidize tuition for 15 students in the college’s Master of Jewish Education program.

The Covenant grant will support efforts to introduce Godly Play curricula into several area supplementary schools, day schools and early-childhood centers over the next year.

Founded in 1921, Hebrew College promotes excellence in Jewish learning and leadership within a pluralistic environment. Its programs include graduate degrees and courses in Jewish studies, education and leadership; community education for adult learners; and a supplemental Hebrew high school and middle school.
