The Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies made history when it opened the first independent rabbinical school on the West Coast. While we take pride in being history-makers and serving as pioneers in the Conservative Jewish community, we are much more than innovators and pacesetters. First and foremost, we are a full-fledged five-year rabbinical school that values rigorous scholarship, embraces the splendors of spirituality, and provides our students with vast opportunities to grow intellectually and spiritually.

On the idyllic campus of American Jewish University, in Los Angeles, and in an atmosphere that places great emphasis on personalized teaching, our students open their minds and hearts to the texts and traditions of our religion, feel the presence of God in their lives, and assume the ever-expanding roles and responsibilities offered to those entering the Conservative rabbinate of the 21st century.

We invite you to learn more about the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies and welcome your questions and requests for more information.
