Yavneh Bet: The Center for Applied Rabbinic Innovation
Yavneh Bet: The Center for Applied Rabbinic Innovation is transforming and elevating the quality, impact and reach of rabbinic leadership through pluralistic, cohort-based training and support for contemporary Jewish spiritual leaders as they serve in the field.
Yavneh Bet offers applied post-graduate education and field supervision to working rabbis. Under the auspices of Hillel International’s Office of Innovation, the Fellowship for Rabbinic Entrepreneurs has trained over 25 rabbis in the past four years; these clergy have gone on to lead or start new communities and projects across the country.
In 2020-21, we are expanding our Fellowship offerings to include a second cohort for Rabbinic Intrapreneurs - offering two fellowship opportunities for innovative rabbis and rabbinical students in their last two years of seminary or their first 5 years post-ordination. More information about both fellowships is available here.
