Professionals study to become rabbis

Graham Paul | Staff Writer | Posted: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 10:00 am

A group of local Jewish professionals and their guiding rabbi, Rabbi Sholom Skolnik, have been convening to examine the Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law) as part of a new study group at the Phoenix Community Kollel. If the group members pass a rigorous final exam, they will receive smicha (ordination) as rabbis.

The study group – also known as a chabura – began studying in 2015 as a branch of the international Judaic studies program Keter HaTorah. Keter HaTorah is a yeshiva based in Israel, dedicated to teaching Jewish law to a network of chaburot around the world.
