23-06-2009

First six rabbis graduated on Tuesday from the Maharal Institute, a rabbinical seminary which opened last year in Prague’s Jewish quarter. The students, who spent ten months in Prague, came from Israel, the United States, Austria, and Latin America. The Maharal Institute was founded to promote the study of the works by famous 16th century rabbi Loew, also known as the Maharal. This year marks the 400th anniversary of his death.
