Educational Resources

As the central educational agency for the Greater Indianapolis Jewish community, the Bureau of Jewish Education provides many resources for both the Jewish and secular communities.  The BJE Maurer Library is the oldest Judaica library in Central Indiana and is constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of the Jewish community and local residents.  BJE Holocaust Education programs bring together experts in Holocaust education and personal narratives that personalize this dark period in Jewish history.  The Jewish Education Directors Council brings together community educators to continue meeting the needs of our learners and teachers.

These resources are available through the generous support of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis Annual Campaign and various BJE Endowment Funds.  To show your appreciation for these resources, consider contributing to the JFGI Annual Campaign or BJE Endowment Funds.
