The heart of Judaism pulses at Hebrew Seminary;
students pick up the beat and pass it on midor ledor, from generation to generation.
The Seminary offers a scholarly education that empowers rabbis to be spiritual guides. Through support from the community, Hebrew Seminary carries the Jewish legacy into a future that reflects a shared rabbinic vision of kindness, and compassion for all.
The mission of Hebrew Seminary is to train women and men as rabbis and Jewish educators to serve all Jewish communities, including the deaf community. Hebrew Seminary has been an inclusive and egalitarian community for the study and practice of Judaism since our founding in 1992.
Our program encourages the highest commitment to traditional scholarship, such as Talmud, Bible, and Hebrew, as well as the spiritual discipline of Kabbalah. This teaches our students to be scholars, educators, and leaders, as well as spiritual guides who can hear and share the voice of God with members of their communities.
