In the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary's (SRS) Bet Midrash, future Masorti rabbis, educators and activists for religious pluralism engage intensively in the study of Jewish sources. Women and men are offered the unique opportunity to learn in-depth, along with options of practical training in rabbinics, education and chaplaincy/marpeh.

The two main study tracks at SRS are: 1) The 2-year Mishlei Program combining religious studies (Talmud, Bible) in a classic Bet Midrash “hevruta” study mode with leadership training and an M.A. degree in Jewish studies; 2) The 3-year Ordination Track for outstanding Mishlei graduates seeking rabbinical ordination, and committed to professional, communal or educational leadership.

South American rabbinical students from the Seminario Rabinico study in Schechter’s one-year overseas Bet Midrash program, which provides the opportunity to meet Israeli peers while studying in Hebrew at a high-level. Students from JTS and other North American rabbinical seminaries also take courses at SRS during their study year in Israel.

Israeli rabbinical student interns participating in the Legacy Heritage Rabbinic Fellows Program perform their fieldwork at Masorti congregations conducting outreach programs and pastoral work under the guidance of the local congregational rabbi.  They work with children, families and adults to strengthen Masorti congregations throughout Israel.

Since 1988, the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary has ordained 87 Israeli rabbis, who have taken their place as leaders in Israel and throughout the world. They are addressing needs as community leaders in Masorti congregations serving new immigrants and veteran Israelis, as spiritual educators in TALI schools, as advocates of women's religious rights, , and as role models of contemporary religious observance engaging with all sectors of Israeli society.

Once ordained, the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary continues to support Israeli Masorti rabbis through the Lehava Program, providing continuing professional education and high-level learning aimed at improving the work of rabbis in the field.
