Hebrew College President Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld was featured in a November 2021 interview on the Jewish Broadcasting Network. In the interview, she discusses the College’s Centennial Year and its plans to move to a new shared campus in Newton in December 2022.

“The very heart of our shared campus vision is that we’re living in a time when we need to open lots of different doorways to Jewish life. For some people the synagogue doorway is a still a very important and vital doorway. For others, that won’t be the way in. Instead, it might be through the arts, movement and meditation, text study, social activism, or other creative ritual. So it’s a vision that says, ‘Let’s open a lot of different doorways to Jewish life and then let’s make sure there are opportunities at all of those doorways for growth, and for deepening people’s engagement with real, content rich learning, community, and connection.'” — President Anisfeld
