Our Rabbis and Cantors
Rabbis and cantors who affiliate with the ARC are committed to creating and building holy communities of learning, growth and spirit. Cantors and rabbis in the ARC are graduates of the Academy for Jewish Religion, a pluralistic seminary whose goal it is to train exceptional rabbis and cantors to serve the needs of contemporary Jewish communities. Members of the ARC come from diverse backgrounds and levels of observance. We pride ourselves on our commitment to learning from one another and growing together as the spiritual leaders of the Jewish community of the 21st century.
All placement for members of the Association of Rabbis and Cantors (as well as other AJR alumni) is now handled through the Academy of Jewish Religion. Please visit their site for more information.
AJR and ARC are committed to helping both affiliated and non-affiliated communities find a spiritual leader best suited for their needs. At the same time, ARC strives to serve the best interest of our clergy members by offering support and other professional services as graduates of the Academy for Jewish Religion enter the world of the rabbinate and cantorate. Our rabbis and cantors serve in a number of rabbinic and cantorial roles including congregational, pastoral and educational.
