About Educational Alliance

Educational Alliance, a 126-year-old New York institution, is a vibrant, dynamic organization serving New Yorkers from all walks of life.

From our beginnings as a place for Jewish immigrants to learn how to acclimate to the U.S., we serve everyone regardless of the language they speak, where they come from, or their socioeconomic status.  To date, we have helped 4 million New Yorkers.

Driven by Jewish values and the belief that learning is a lifelong process, we strive to create programs and services that embrace innovation and build community.  We have re-defined how to serve a community, offering a wide variety of engaging and educational opportunities  for everyone in each stage of life.

We’re a living laboratory, piloting and investigating ways to solve problems, create a better society, and advocate for the vulnerable.  We believe that arts & culture, education, health & wellness, and social services can build bright futures.
