A Jewish Theological Institute will be established at Heidelberg this year. The purpose of the Institute which will eventually be affiliated with the university, is to train German-speaking rabbis, religion teachers and cantors. At present, no such training center exists in any German-speaking country. Rabbis who head the houses of worship serving the Federal Republic’s 35,000 Jews are being trained abroad. The Institute, which plans soon to enroll a first contingent of some 20 students, will be funded by the Federal Government, the state governments and the Central Council of Jews in Germany.
