The case for Hebrew Seminary
Your gift makes a difference

In 1992 Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer and a group of Chicago business leaders (Alan Crane, Joan & Stan Golder, and Howard Rosenblum) established the first seminary to train deaf and hearing women and men to become rabbis and teachers serving not only hearing people, but specifically trained to serve the numerous Jewish deaf communities all over the United States. Your caring gift will help provide these spiritual leaders and teachers to communities across the country.

In Pirkei Avot it says, “ The world is sustained by 3 things: Torah, Prayer and good deeds.” Your contribution to Hebrew Seminary will allow us to continue our mission of being the only Rabbinic school in the world which trains deaf and hearing Rabbis and educators.

At Hebrew Seminary, under the leadership of Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer, we have been training students for over 30 years! Hebrew Seminary is a 501c (3) not for profit organization; we rely on generous individuals and corporations.
