Commencement & Ordination

Hebrew College will hold its 95th Commencement and Ordination Ceremonies on Sunday, June 7, 2020.

However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Hebrew College has hade made the difficult decision not to gather in person for our Commencement exercises and Ordination ceremonies on June 7. This is a real loss for all of us, but especially for our graduating students and family members and friend who have been looking forward to this moment for years. We are currently in the process of determining how best to mark these occasions, and will do in close collaboration with our graduating students to ensure that there will be a meaningful opportunity for us to gather as a community to honor and celebrate their accomplishments.

Hebrew College is a dynamic center for graduate and community education, empowering Jewish leaders and learners to cultivate lives of meaning and connection, create vibrant, pluralistic, and purposeful Jewish communities, and build a more compassionate world.

The individuals graduating from Hebrew College’s various schools and programs have been nourished in an environment that recognizes the need for Jewish learning to draw upon the rich resources of our distinctive culture and traditions. Nurturing leaders who will bring compelling Jewish content into the center of communal life is a critical component of our institutional vision.

We are proud of our graduates as they take their places as advanced learners, innovative teachers, and dedicated leaders. The multiple voices they have encountered in texts, in teachers, and in dialogue with each other will enable them to contribute to the enhancement of Jewish life here in North America, in Israel, and throughout the world.
