Biography/Organization History

Historical Note: Established in 1991 and replacing the Graduate School of Judaica, the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies made history when it opened the first independent rabbinical school on the West Coast. While we take pride in being history-makers and serving as pioneers in the Conservative Jewish community, we are much more than innovators and pacesetters. First and foremost, we are a full-fledged five-year rabbinical school that values rigorous scholarship, embraces the splendors of spirituality, and provides our students with vast opportunities to grow intellectually and spiritually. Through a forward thinking approach that combines a rigorous study of texts with practical, hands on training in such areas as counseling, education and chaplaincy, the Conservative-affiliated school is ensuring that the rabbis of tomorrow will be able to meet the diverse needs of Jewish communities in the United States and abroad.
