Academic Centers

As part of our continuing effort to bring innovative programming and resources to the Jewish community, we have established centers on ethics and Jewish women's and gender studies.

The program centers call on their roots in Jewish tradition and engage creatively with contemporary society, helping us heal the world as they bring vitality to our campus community.

Center for Jewish Ethics

The Center for Jewish Ethics, Levin-Leiber Program in Jewish Ethics, was established in 1994 to address Jews' struggle for ethical learning and their need for guidance as they encounter the ethical demands of contemporary life.

The Center, directed by Rabbi David A. Teutsch, Ph.D., also is the host and cofounder of the groundbreaking, pluralistic Academic Coalition for Jewish Bioethics, which mounts an annual conference and a related journal. 

Kolot: The Center for Jewish Women's and Gender Studies

Kolot: The Center for Jewish Women's and Gender Studies is a pioneering academic and activist center that trains rabbinical students and other Jewish leaders at RRC; advances scholarship through teaching, publications and conferences; and develops national programs to enhance the religious and spiritual lives of all Jews. The Center brings to the Jewish community insights and innovative practices from the study of gender and Judaism.
