No great Jewish community in history has lasted unless, at its center, there stands a vibrant and vital center of learning and teaching. Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion is dedicated to fulfilling its mission as the educational and intellectual center of Reform Judaism. It is committed to educating the academic, spiritual, and professional leaders for congregations and communities throughout North America, Israel, and the world.
For over 140 years, HUC-JIR has trained and supported trailblazers for the Jewish world. These students become the thought leaders and change makers of their age.

A global pandemic, economic disruption, and a sweeping movement for racial justice. The need for innovative, creative, and resilient Jewish leaders has never been more apparent. Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion must rise to the occasion, despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the vulnerability of our organizational structure and has stretched the limits of our students, faculty, and staff as our community continues to adapt to a rapidly changing landscape.
Despite this daunting forecast, opportunities abound for HUC to meet the challenges of this moment and renew our work to forge the next generation of “pursuers of justice” (Isaiah 51:1). With your support, HUC will continue to nurture and train the rabbis, cantors, Jewish educational and nonprofit professional leaders, and scholars who will build and foster communities of value, based on our tradition and with justice for all.
The Jewish future rests in your hands. Every day, throughout the world, students and graduates of HUC-JIR strengthen Jewish communities and transform Jewish lives. Every year HUC-JIR depends on annual giving to cover the cost of educating HUC-JIR students. Each dollar you contribute is used immediately to meet student needs, promote learning, advance professional development, support innovative programs, and prepare Jewish leaders for tomorrow. Your help is so important.
