Held on the campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
The UAHC, HUC-JIR, and the CCAR are excited to offer a specialized lay-training program called Sh'liach K'hilah, Synagogue Associate. This program is designed for synagogue leaders interested in assisting their own congregations. Participants who successfully complete the Sh'liach K'hilah program will be able to serve their congregation either by assisting an ordained/invested clergy with the sacred work of the synagogue or, in those congregations without clergy, by serving as a synagogue leader.
The program equips synagogue leaders with skills to lead worship services, teach Judaica and Torah study, assist with bikur cholim visits, assist with services at a house of mourning, and develop religious school teaching skills. The Shaliach Kahilah program offers an opportunity for participants to add to their Jewish knowledge, literacy, and practical skills. For those who wish to increase their engagement in congregational life, this program provides personal and spiritual enrichment.

Summer Ulpan for First Year Rabbinical, Cantorial, and Education Students
Twenty-nine students from the entering 2002 rabbinical, cantorial, and education class are spending 5 weeks on the Cincinnati campus, studying Modern Hebrew in an intensive Ulpan, before going to the Jerusalem campus in mid-August for their Year-in-Israel. The students are being taught by four dynamic Israeli teachers who are now residing in the Cincinnati area. In addition to their class time, students will participate in morning tefillah, attend lectures given by local rabbis, join Israeli dancing classes, and take part in a number of other social activities.
