My year as a visitor at Hebrew College Rabbinical School was transformative. The davening was uplifting and soul nourishing and the learning amazing — a wonderful blend of serious scholarship and deep spiritual and moral inquiry. I encountered a supportive learning community with respect for tradition coupled with room for challenge and honest debate.
