The ordination ceremony will probably be the first time you'll meet (in person) all the other students from your Rabbinical School. As such, we believe it's worthy of extra-special celebration - a whole weekend of celebration, in fact! As well as the ceremony itself, there'll be meals, services, discussions, and plenty of time for getting to know each other. Family and friends are more than welcome to attend the ordination ceremony with you.
Ordination weekends take place twice a year - in late August and in January. The date of your ordination weekend will depend on when you enrolled in the JSLI Rabbinical School. Those beginning their Rabbinical School classes in September 2012 will have their ordination weekend on July 12-14 in Delray Beach, Florida. Those beginning their classes in January 2013 will have their ordination weekend on January 3-5 - also in Delray Beach, Florida.
There are additional fees for travel to the ordination weekend; please contact us for information about the ordination itself and any fees you'll be expected to pay.
