A group of close to 30 rabbis from across the country gathered in Chicago from June 11-13 to participate in study and discussion sessions designed to enhance their professional skills. The three-day Yarchei Kallah, part of an ongoing program developed by Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future (CJF), was created to offer young rabbis who want to improve their skills and develop useful tools to take back to their congregations. The program has become a popular event for all the participating rabbis across North America.
Yeshiva University Center for the Jewish Future has developed what is believed to be the first formal program at any rabbinical school in America designed to give rabbis’ wives the opportunity to meet with professionals to discuss issues of self, family, and community in a safe and supportive environment. The 2nd Annual “Rebbetzins Yarchei Kallah” program will take place from February 12-14 at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck, NJ.
