Fall Institute for Prospective Rabbinical Students
This important program occurs every fall and is designed for serious candidates who want to learn more about RRC. Participants have the opportunity to sit in on classes, meet current students and faculty, learn about student life at RRC, celebrate Shabbat with a Reconstructionist community, and get the information you need to decide about rabbinical school.

Nothing substitutes for a visit to RRC—it’s the best way to get to know us. Prospective student visitors are always welcome! Individual visits can be arranged any time during the academic year. You will have an opportunity to sit in on classes, tour our building, meet students, and chat with faculty and staff.
During your visit, you will meet with Rabbi Roni Handler for an informal conversation exploring your interest in rabbinical school. You will have a chance to ask questions about the rabbinical program of study, student life, the application process and other matters of interest and importance to you.
To schedule a visit, contact Rabbi Roni Handler, interim director of admissions and recruitment.

Tour the Campus
Our facilities are housed in a redbrick, slate-roofed Georgian mansion originally built as a summer home for the Curtis family, publishers of the Saturday Evening Post. Located within Ziegelman Hall are classrooms, administrative staff and a language and media laboratory. An adjoining building houses the state-of-the-art Goldyne Savad Library Center and Ira and Judith Kaplan Eisenstein Reconstructionist Archives and faculty offices.
