While the Tomer Devorah seminary is physically located in Israel, its impact is alive and thriving in America. The Tomer Devorah experience does not end on the return flight home. We maintain continued contact with, and an impact on, students long after their year in seminary is over. The Tomer Devorah family remains in touch in several innovative ways:
- Alumnae programming – We want the friendships formed in seminary to have fertile ground in which to further develop in the years post-seminary. Tomer Devorah runs shiurim, reunions, and Shabbatonim for graduates in the U.S., providing opportunities for alumnae to get together and deepen relationships. Our programs include having members of our staff travel to America to maintain and strengthen their ties with our post-sem students as well.
- Rabbinic support network – Tomer Devorah has close affiliations with various Rabbanim in the United States. Over the course of the students’ year in Israel, these Rabbanim visit the seminary, hold workshops and are introduced to our students . They are prepared for Tomer Devorah graduates to call and/or visit them back in America. When our students have questions or wish to seek rabbinic advice, they know they will have a familiar face and a warm reception available to them.
- Professional network – Realizing that most Tomer Devorah students will attend college or pursue careers, Tomer Devorah maintains a network of professionals in various popular fields who are available for discussion with Tomer Devorah alumnae. These professionals will give college-age students direction and advice about their given fields of work.
