The Hebrew Seminary, founded in 1992, is a pluralistic, egalitarian, inclusive Rabbinical school that trains people as Rabbis and educators to serve all Jewish communities, including the Deaf community.
All classes are currently held virtually and are open to Rabbinic students, as well as auditing students from around the world.
We are very sorry to share that Hebrew Seminary’s cherished Rav Yeshivah, Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer, z’l, departed this world on February 3, 2022. Rabbi was so proud of everyone at Hebrew Seminary. We are his legacy. His teachings, his kindness, his unconditional love and acceptance, and his dedication to bringing all of us closer to HaShem, will continue on, through all of you. Please click here to read a tribute in The Forward about Rabbi Dr. Goldhamer. May Rabbi’s memory be a blessing for all of us.
Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer was featured by Silverscreen Studios, in partnership with Reboot, for the first episode of the new series
“Sign of the Times.” Rabbi Dr. Goldhamer and Silverscreen were featured in the Chicago Tribune here.
