Through our programs for cantorial and rabbinical 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 cantors and rabbis committed to bringing a moral voice to human rights.

The Year-in-Israel Program


T’ruah offers cantorial and rabbinical 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. Learn more here.
