For the past 28 years, JTS has been offering RTI, a continuing rabbinic education program, to rabbis in the field. Run each year at full capacity, RTI accommodates Conservative rabbis at an off-site location for a week of professional and personal growth.
The strength of the Rabbinic Training Institute lies in its ability to draw leading scholars and thinkers. Participants will engage in serious learning with world-renowned scholars, focus on practical skills in a developing rabbinate, and discuss spiritual issues that practicing rabbis face.
RTI morning sessions attract the brightest and most engaging minds of Judaism, who are then matched with Fortune 500 consultants and leadership coaches during the afternoon sessions. Particularly valuabe to RTI participants are the evening meetings. In these smaller groups, participants can engage each other—as well as the professional facilitator—to focus their thinking and decision making on how to manage present issues in their rabbinates.
