Montefiore Dayanut Programme

Following publicity by the Rabbinical Council of America, a further contingent of  high-calibre rabbis from Australia and from the United States of America has been accepted for the next phase of the Montefiore Dayanut Programme due to start in September 2018.

This programme, run in partnership with Eretz Hemdah, Jerusalem, involves interactive study by internet as well as face-to-face teaching. It already includes rabbis from the U.K., Germany, the Netherlands, Jerusalem, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Australia and the U.S.A. Because of the distances and time changes involved, the course is divided into two parallel streams – one for the U.K. and adjacent countries and the other for rabbis mainly in the U.S.A. and Australia.

After some five years of study, graduates will be granted Eretz Hemdah’s semicha ‘Yadin-Yadin for the Diaspora’ in the topics of Marriage, Divorce and Conversion, which constitute the bulk of work undertaken by Batei Din in the diaspora..
