We live in a changing Jewish world. Patterns of Jewish identification and involvement are shifting. Individuals are searching for new ways of connecting to one another and to Jewish life. The roles of the rabbi continues to expand well beyond the pulpit. 

The Rabbinical School of Hebrew College is uniquely positioned to prepare Jewish leaders for the 21st century.  Within Hebrew College‚Äôs vibrant pluralistic community, our Rabbinical School students:

  • Find their voice as they cultivate an honest, authentic expression of Judaism and develop a nourishing Jewish spiritual practice.
  • Drink deeply from the well of Jewish tradition through our beit midrash centered learning, traditional and creative tefillah, and academically rigorous courses led by world-renowned faculty.
  • Shape their professional growth through numerous specialization options so they can bring their rabbinic vision to life.

With nearly a 95% placement rate in various settings, including the pulpit, college campuses, hospital chaplaincy, Jewish communal organizations and Jewish education, Hebrew College can make your rabbinic dream a reality. In fact, several of our graduates are entrepreneurs, including Rabbi Adina Allen, Rab',14 co-founder of the Jewish Studio Project in Berkeley, CA. You might be interested in reading about her journey from the rabbinate to entrepreneur (and viewing a list of other rabbi-founded businesses and organizations.)
