Reconstructionist Rabbinical College | Home

The Reconstructionist Rabbinical College is the sole seminary of the Reconstructionist movement. Founded in 1968 to serve the Jewish people and the wider world, RRC is dedicated to teaching Judaism as an evolving religious civilization and to engaging with the riches of Jewish tradition to create meaning, connect to the sacred and bring individuals and communities to greater love, justice and peace.

Becoming a rabbi is a process that encompasses deep intellectual, spiritual and professional growth. As part of a close-knit and deeply engaged community, you’ll become steeped in Jewish texts, history, ritual, and practice, while gaining a wide range of skills through immersive field experience. Upon graduation, you will be ready to serve the Jewish people as a rabbi — deeply rooted in the richness of Jewish tradition and responsive to the experiences, needs and aspirations of evolving Jewish communities. We invite you to be part of a generation of rabbis who truly meet people where they are.

We created this website for you. We invite you to read and explore the site, and then contact us to learn more. We’d love to hear from you and talk about the kind of rabbi you want to be.

Students, faculty and staff are learning and working remotely to help curtail the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community members and their loved ones safe. We look forward to continuing to connect with you as always. The College’s physical offices remain closed until further notice.

May those directly impacted experience refuah shleimah: a healing of body mind and spirit. And may we all do our part to save lives. In Judaism, the obligation of pikuach nefesh (saving a life) supersedes all.
