Sulam Yaakov is going on its seventh year. From its start as a cooperative Bet Midrash of barely ten men, it has grown into a Yeshiva which offers one of Jerusalem’s most innovative rabbinical and leadership training programs. To date 22 rabbis have matriculated in our three graduating classes. We focus on core competencies and primary areas of concern and challenge for rabbinical leaders, while still providing high level study in the traditional areas of Jewish Law required for certification (Smicha).
The program allows the participants to live and work on the Kibbutz, learning Hebrew, buiding a community with the group, and experiencing communal life.
