Rabbi Blane is Founder and Dean of JSLI- The Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute. For candidates who demonstrate the necessary backgrounds and life experiences, JSLI is an Online Rabbinical School which offers Ordination (Semicha) as Rabbi with one year of study.
We explore Halacha (Rabbinical Law), Liturgy and Rituals and prepare you to utilize your skills and life-experience to become a rabbi.
At the culmination of two semesters of study, students attend and participate in a Shabbaton weekend culminating in an Ordination Ceremony. Students are then granted Semicha by a Bet Din (three Rabbis) as fully ordained rabbis.
At JSLI, there’s no need to relocate yourself or your family. Simply join your classmates live at our online rabbinical seminary each week. While we may not be learning together in a brick-and-mortar location, we still have a warm and thriving online community of open-minded forward thinking men and women.
After you become ordained as a Rabbi, we have a wonderful support system at our private JSLI Facebook page where we share life’s journeys and rabbinical resources.
