The Israeli Rabbinic Leadership Fellowship is a supplementary rabbinic training program for those currently studying to become rabbis or recently ordained in Israel. Fellows meet while continuing their full-time work or studies at Israeli Yeshivot, with the goal of enhancing their leadership with the best of the YCT curriculum: unique Talmud Torah, Professional Rabbinics, a sense of mission to inspire and enhance the Jewish People, and an encounter with unique aspects of the American Jewish community.
Each cohort meet weekly for a year to learn with YCT’s faculty as well as Israeli rabbis and leaders. Two summits in Israel and a two week educational seminar in North America provide peak educational and transformative experiences. The seminar in North American includes studies at the YCT Beit Midrash, a shabbat with YCT Rabbis serving diverse communities, and the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, DC. The program also includes an internship element with leading rabbis in Israel, and a chaplaincy training at Haifa’s Rambam Hospital. Participants receive a stipend during the months of study.
YCT Israel is a supplementary program in Rabbinic education. Those who complete the fellowship will receive a Certificate of Rabbinic Leadership from YCT.
