  • Description

    In 1996, RPF made one of its first grants to support a rabbinic fellowship at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun in New York. More than 20 years later, Rabbi Sharon Brous, one of that program’s graduates, has joined forces with six other much-loved rabbis from innovative Jewish organizations across the U.S. in order to train the next generation of rabbi leaders. Their program, the Jewish Emergent Network Fellowship, places select early career rabbis into the seven participating communities (one rabbi per community) for a two-year period, immersing them in the work of thriving congregations while providing valuable on-the-job training and mentorship. RPF’s support will help a second cohort complete this unique fellowship—ensuring stronger, more innovative leaders and a more vibrant future for Jewish communities to come.
