Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson, Rabbi David Ellenson, Rabbi Joy Levitt and Dr. Erin Leib Smokler; Moderated by Rabbi Hayim Herring, PhD

Presented by The Jewish Week

Rabbinical programs are designed to cultivate rabbis who balance transmission of tradition with adaptation to contemporary culture. How do rabbinical programs educate rabbis in the 21st century, a time when instability is the new norm? This far-reaching question calls for a community conversation.

This program is inspired by the recently published volume Keeping Faith in Rabbis: A Community Conversation on Rabbinical Education, edited by Rabbi Hayim Herring, PhD, and Ellie Roscher.

A conversation with Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson, Senior Rabbi, Temple Emanuel-El; Rabbi David Ellenson, Chancellor, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Rabbi Joy Levitt, Executive Director of the JCC Manhattan and Dr. Erin Leib Smokler, Director of Spiritual Development at Yeshivat Maharat.

Please note seating is unreserved for this event.  It is recommended that you arrive early to select your seat.
Tickets are non-refundable.
