Held on the campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute
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 Sh’liach
K’hilah 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
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.
