Italian Rabbinical College, the academic year kicks off

The academic year had its start on Sunday at the Italian Rabbinical College, the school that as primary duty has the education of rabbis e Jewish subjects’ teachers, with a lecture by Director Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni. The school provides a “medium” and a “higher” course. The first one, which requires at least four years, confers the title of “maskil”. The second one, of eight years, aims at a specific rabbinical preparation for students who already obtained the title of maskil (or can prove they have equivalent training). Along with these academic paths, the College functions as a pole for the diffusion of traditional Jewish culture in Italy.
The inaugural lesson, focused on the Rosh HaShanah treatise of the Talmud, was available in person and online.
