Become a Rabbi at JTS

The Rabbinical 学校 education is rooted in spirituality and scholarship, preparing students to become transformative leaders in diverse settings across North America and throughout the world. 

Our programs combine serious learning with superior professional training, supported by a Jewish community deeply committed to tefillah, study, and practice. Students participate in immersive learning in Israel, spiritual mentorship, 实地考察, and a master’s level curriculum as they prepare for a life of sacred service.  

The rich academic resources of JTS allow our students to design highly individualized programs, combining their rabbinic ordination with a master’s degree in a specific area of Jewish Studies or Jewish education, as well the option for a certificate in Pastoral Care. The Block / Kolker Center for Spiritual Arts, an incubator for inventive approaches to prayer, is a unique resource for those seeking to deepen their own prayer experience and to revitalize prayer in our communities.
