Welcome! ברוכים הבאים

The Hebrew Seminary, founded in 1992, is a pluralistic, egalitarian, inclusive Rabbinical school for deaf & hearing that trains people as Rabbis and educators to serve all Jewish communities, including the deaf community. Our program encourages the highest commitment to traditional scholarship, such as Talmud, Bible, and Hebrew, as well as ASL and the spiritual discipline of Kabbalah. All classes are currently held virtually and are open to Rabbinic students, as well as auditing students from around the world.

We are very excited to be a Jews of Color Initiative (JOC) 2021 grant recipient! Learn more Here.
