PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Having a wise heart is an ideal of Jewish life. Thus, we ask rabbis to participate in our Continuing Rabbinical Education (CRE) programs because we recognize that learning is an important lifetime commitment for religious leaders. We are proud of our various seminars and learning opportunities which address the prioritized concerns of the rabbinical community. Given our pluralistic paradigm, we select rabbis of different denominations to present meaningful materials to our members throughout our calendar year.

 For rabbis who want to make a difference in their own communities and the larger Jewish community, membership in the NYBR offers numerous opportunities. Affiliation with at least one of our many committees offers numerous benefits, including the ability to gather substantive information pertaining to specific areas of concern and interest. Membership also affords a chance for rabbis and rabbinical students to connect with colleagues in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding.
