Our intellectually rigorous and spiritually renewing Rabbinic Torah Seminar (RTS) enriches rabbis of all denominations and nurtures their capacity to inspire their communities.
Rabbinic Torah Seminar offers a rare opportunity for rabbinic leaders of all denominations to study together in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Participants explore the contemporary issues facing the Jewish people and elevate their leadership through transformative learning:
Rabbis play a pivotal role in determining the direction and quality of Jewish life. In order to realize their full potential, rabbis need to cultivate spiritual and intellectual vibrancy and excellence through ongoing learning, personal growth, and new ideas for communal reflection and stimulation.
World class faculty include leading Hartman Institute scholars such as Donniel Hartman, Yehuda Kurtzer, Tal Becker, Mijal Bitton, Micah Goodman, Yossi Klein Halevi, Elana Stein Hain and Melila Hellner-Eshed, and key figures in world Jewry.
In 2023 our pluralistic community of rabbis explored the Jewish commitments that define our religious, spiritual, and communal lives. Together with senior faculty and research fellows, we investigated our moral, spiritual and communal choices as modern Jews. From July 14-23, 2023, we challenged ourselves to reflect on Jewish meaning, belonging, and obligation with fresh eyes.
