Principals & Teachers Licensing

The National Board of License (NBL) for Teachers and Principals in Jewish Schools in North America serves the Jewish community, including day schools, congregational / community schools, early childhood programs, and family education through the establishment of standards and criteria for the certification of professional educators. The certification process is designed to provide recognition to qualified educators as well as to encourage those who are entering the field to pursue professional training.

The National Board of License places a high value on continuing education for all professionals, both veterans with many years of experiences and those who are entering the field either with or without formal training. By recognizing that individuals are drawn to the field through a variety of venues, the NBL has created a system of certification built on the existing opportunities available to individuals in communities throughout the continent.

The Bureau of Jewish Education (BJE) is the ‘accredited local board’ for Educators interested in applying for a license here in the Boston area. If you are interested in learning more about the National Board of License, please check their website at or contact Penni Moss at the BJE at 617-965-7350 x244.
