People ask me sometimes what rabbinic school was like. My short answer is “amazing — really hard — and one of the best things I’ve ever done.” But maybe a longer answer would be interesting to those who read this blog.
Disclaimer: this may not be characteristic of everyone’s experience; I was a rabbinic student, so I can’t speak to the experience of students in ALEPH’s other programs; and of course the program continues to evolve, so students today may have some different experiences than I had. That said…
