• A New Vision of the Rabbinate

    Rabbi Professor Dr. Breadley Shavit Artson Dean

    Today, many Jews all over the world are seeking knowledge, spiritual renewal, connection to God, and a sense of identity through an exploration of their history, culture, language, values and traditions. 

    The decision to enter the rabbinate is an exciting and complex one. For those committed to the service of God and devoted to the Jewish people, the rabbinate offers the daily combination of challenge and opportunity infused with personal meaning and spiritual fulfillment. 

    “The Zacharias Frankel College is dedicated to training a new cadre of Masorti/Conservative rabbis in Europe who are deeply versed in Jewish texts, committed to a life of mitzvoth and the love of the Jewish tradition, and who are capable of transmitting the beauty and wisdom of Judaism to others. 

    We rejoice that our graduates will leave the College as passionate, dynamic and creative thinkers, who can bring a sense of energy and holiness to the communities they will serve. Zacharias Frankel College is fully European – and yet under full religious supervision of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.”
