Through our programs for rabbinical and cantorial students, T’ruah is training the next generation of clergy to be human rights leaders. These programs combine on-the-ground experience with Jewish learning, tools for developing a rabbinic voice, issue education, and the building of cross-denominational cohorts of future rabbis and cantors committed to bringing a moral voice to human rights.
The Year-in-Israel Program, presented in partnership with Rabbis for Human Rights, offers rabbinical and cantorial students spending the academic year in Israel on-the-ground experience in human rights issues affecting Israelis, Palestinians, and asylum seekers, along with the chance to develop a rabbinic voice on human rights in Israel.
The T’ruah Israel Fellowship offers six select rabbinical and cantorial students in-depth learning and training, along with the opportunity for leadership within the Year-in-Israel Program. Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will open in February.
The Summer Fellowship in Human Rights Leadership offers six select rabbinical and cantorial students the chance to spend a summer working in a New York-based human rights organization with which T’ruah partners. Applications for summer 2018 will open in October.
