RIETS Rabbinic Alumni

RIETS Rabbinic Alumni is a century-old Torah fraternity that 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. The primary goal of RIETS Rabbinic Alumni is to link its more than 2,000 ordained rabbis to Yeshiva University, to RIETS and to each other. The following 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.

The Morris and Gertrude Bienenfeld Department of Jewish Career Development and Placement, a division of Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future-RIETS, congratulates the following rabbis upon their new positions.
