Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School (YCT) believes that the future of Orthodoxy is dependent on our becoming a movement that expands outward, non-dogmatically, and cooperatively, to encompass the needs of the larger Jewish community and the world. For this vision to succeed, we require a new breed of Jewish leaders – rabbis who are open, non-judgmental, knowledgeable, empathetic, and eager to transform Orthodoxy into a movement that meaningfully and respectfully interacts with all Jews, regardless of affiliation, commitment, or background.
We seek to train and place the best and the brightest that Modern Orthodoxy has to offer. Students are chosen through a rigorous process that employs the highest academic standards and scrutinizes every applicant’s character, make-up, and overall ability to perform and excel as a Jewish leader in the community. The curriculum is taught at the highest levels of academic excellence by leading scholars and talmidei chakhamim. Our Modern Orthodox rabbinical school cultivates a love of Torah, a philosophy of inclusiveness, and a passion for leadership.
