YCT rabbis distinguish themselves in their serving of both the Orthodox community and the entire Jewish community at large.

Their desperately needed and hugely impactful work is grounded in principle that כל ישראל ערבים זה בזה – that every Jewish person is intertwined with, and responsible for the well-being of, every member of our Jewish family – and propelled by the mandate to action that emerges from the verse of Yosef’s plaintive cry, את אחי אנכי מבקש, “It is my brothers and sisters whom I seek.”

Our rabbis serve in community schools; in camps and camping organizations; on major college campuses throughout the U.S.; and in chaplaincy positions in hospitals, assisted living facilities, prisons, and in Israel. Our rabbis are innovators, thought-leaders and change agents.Some of the most transformative and visionary initiatives in the Jewish community over the last 20 years have been founded, launched and headed by YCT rabbis.

When Am Yisrael needs leaders, our rabbis are there.
