Hebrew College is situated in a vibrant learning community. They share the belief that education is vital to Jewish vivacity, and they are fanatical about the arduous study of the full breadth of Jewish religion and culture. Together, they foster lifelong Jewish learning that involves the whole person, challenging the mind and nourishing the soul.
They are on a mission to produce a kind of Judaism that is spiritually gripping and knowledgeably honest, deeply engrained in the sources of tradition, and driven by a spirit of religious creativity and the constant question of how the new Judaism will materialize.
Reimagining Jewish education and leadership for a consistent world like ours are really interesting. Making our lives more meaningful, our communities more vibrant, and our world more whole.

A Brief History on Hebrew College
Louis Hurwich issued a call to revolution: Midway through his announcement of the opening of Hebrew College, on the18 of August 1921 front page of the issue of the Jewish Advocate.
“In the next five years, no less than 75 percent of the present Jewish teachers in Boston will go over to other professions,” warned Hurwich, the superintendent of the Bureau of Jewish Education of Boston.
“The inability of the Jewish school to hold its own is sufficient challenge to the American Jewish community to wake up and to create bases for permanent improvement.” You can get more of the school’s history here.
