rabbinical class of 2024

Meet Our Ordainees

The graduates of the 2024 Rabbinic class are transitioning into an array of roles across the spectrum of Jewish life, from congregational life to academia, hospital chaplaincy to community organizing. These new rabbis will take positions across the country, from Pittsburgh to Colorado, although more than a few will stay “in the neighborhood”, enriching the Jewish community of Greater Boston with their vision and leadership. We are so proud of this class. Learn about their next chapters below!

Give a gift to the Class of 2024 Scholarship Fund to support future ordination students and celebrate this remarkable cohort of new rabbis!
