A City Steeped in Rich Jewish Life

Hebrew College is located in Newton Centre, just outside Boston, one of the leading regions of Jewish innovation and entrepreneurship.

Home to the progressive federation Combined Jewish Philanthropies, Boston is endowed with a wide array of Jewish religious and social-justice institutions. Congregations — both affiliated and independent, established and start-up — abound. Day schools and supplementary Jewish schools are on the forefront of Jewish education. Hebrew College has developed strong ties with many of these institutions, giving students ample opportunities for internships during school and career options upon ordination.

Home to more than 60 colleges and universities, Boston has earned a reputation as the nation’s premier academic hub. And with its myriad arts and cultural offerings, thriving nightlife and scenic beauty, the city is a great place to live and learn.
