Ner Israel Rabbinical College
400 Mt Wilson Ln, Pikesville, MD 21208
Ner Israel Rabbinical College and high school teaches Orthodox Jewish men to be scholars of the religion. TheMore school has a high school as well as undergraduate and graduate divisions. The college offers bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees in Talmudic law. The school trains rabbis and teachers as well as practitioners of the religion: practitioners of Orthodox Jewish religion are required to be scholars of the religion. "It is knowledge for the sake of knowledge," said Rabbi Jonathan Seidemann. While many students graduate as rabbis, many also will be working in business, and they study at the college because they also want to be educated in Jewish law. "In Judaism, it is not just a question that the rabbi and the teachers be knowledgeable, practicing Jews," Rabbi Seidemann said, "it is standard daily practice - most Orthodox Jewish men set aside at least a couple of hours a day for study of the Bible and Talmud."
