The London Montefiore Semicha Programme was opened in January 2006 with the co-operation of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Congregation of London.
Since January 2012, the Semicha Programme has been run in partnership with the London School of Jewish Studies, another institution which Sir Moses Montefiore helped to found.
This is the only such structured course in the United Kingdom and, apart from a single institution in France, is the only one in Europe.
The Montefiore Dayanut Course, in partnership with Eretz Hemdah, Jerusalem, is programmed to commence in late 2016.
