A unique sense of community defines RRC student life. Faculty and students form long-lasting friendships and professional relationships. Our student activities help to prepare you for leadership as a rabbi. We encourage you to participate in College governance to be involved in the community and to become engaged in activism at RRC.
The College's location is just a short drive or commuter rail ride from Philadelphia. The city boasts a strong Jewish presence—including a number of Reconstructionist congregations—and many opportunities for field experience. Philadelphia also is host to a lively arts and entertainment scene. And neighboring higher education institutions such as Gratz College, the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University also offer concentrations in religion, allowing you to branch out academically.
