Founded in 1921, Hebrew College embraces a mission that connects serious academic study of Judaism with the educational needs and challenges of the community through our outstanding graduate, community and youth learning, and professional development programs.
We are training Jewish leaders, professionals and lifelong learners for a world in need of healing and hope.
Courses at Hebrew College were originally taught only in Hebrew; today most classes are taught in English, but Hebrew language instruction for beginners to advanced students remains an essential element of the curriculum for graduate degree programs and an accessible option for adult learners and Prozdor high school students.
Our graduates all complete at least two official internships (though most pursue considerably more field experience while in school), giving them the opportunity to work in a variety of communal contexts and with different ages and populations. We have a 95% placement rate, and would be delighted to speak with you about your search for a new rabbi.
Conveniently located in the heart of Newton Centre, Massachusetts, the campus is a short drive from Boston and its suburbs, easily accessible by major transportation routes, and a short walk from public transportation.
No matter what type of event you’re planning large or small, religious or secular, for your organization or for your family Hebrew College can accommodate your needs.
The Rae and Joseph Gann Library is one of the finest Judaica libraries in New England. We offer the college community and the public extraordinary collections in print, media and electronic formats focused on Judaica, Jewish studies and Jewish education for adults and children.
The library houses some 90,000 volumes of Jewish studies and Judaica, primarily in Hebrew and English.
The Hebrew College campus, designed by Moshe Safdie and Associates, sits on nearly 7 acres on a hillside in Newton Centre, MA and is composed of four interconnected buildings, totaling 72,000 square feet.
Hebrew College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE).
