Hire Our Graduates!

Hebrew College has ordained over 100 hundred rabbis who are powerfully impacting the Jewish world. Our immersive program is rooted in the understanding that a strong spiritual leader is steeped in tradition, while at the same time engaged in the emergent needs of Jewish communities in the 21st century.  Our graduates have engaged in deep study of Jewish text, prayer, and practical rabbinic skills, while also looking outward at contemporary issues facing our society.  Within the school’s vibrant pluralist community, students learn a deep appreciation of different forms of Judaism. They learn as well to become skilled community leaders able to navigate a diversity of needs in the communities they serve.
