In addition, Brandeis Hillel is proud to be an affiliate school of the DeLeT program, with DeLeT Fellows working on each of its campuses and DeLeT graduates among its faculty. Founded in 2001, DeLeT ("door" in Hebrew) is a national initiative designed to bring new people through the doorway to day school teaching and leadership careers.
DeLeT Fellows participate in extensive academic preparation at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles. Fellows then gain practical training at affiliated day schools across the country and benefit from the guidance of mentor teachers. After thirteen months, Fellows earn a Certificate in Jewish Day School Teaching and a California State Teaching Credential.
