Keeping Former Talmidim Connected
The primary goal of RIETS Rabbinic Alumni is to link its over 2,000 ordained rabbis to Yeshiva University, to RIETS and to each other. This century-old Torah fraternity includes members of the pulpit and those in Jewish education, the chaplaincy (both military and health care), outreach and academia, as well as organizational professionals, roshei yeshiva [professors or Talmud], kollel fellows and the laity.
Programs are geared toward maintaining a connection to the yeshiva and its faculty and facilitating professional growth. In addition, Rabbinic Alumni creates a social network, offers help during times of financial stress and assists the professional rabbi in dealing with new challenges.
