Online Rabbinic Ordination?!

There have been other attempts to 'think outside the box' with rabbinic ordination in recent years, including HUC's sharing courses across campuses through videoconferencing, Hebrew College and the Academy offering some of their courses online, and the like. But now Chabad (who else?) is offering full smicha online. As Hayim Herring (of Tools for Shuls fame, who pointed this out to me) asked: how long before other movements follow their lead? Why do they always get there first? And is it even a good idea? What do you think?

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I think that online ordination is becoming a platform for people to take advantage of for special moments. My one friend performed his sister's wedding ceremony because it is what their father would have wanted.

  5. I actually received my ordination from as a minister. Although I do agree that becoming officially ordained takes years of study and commitment, which I have under my belt, but I do not think it is fair to call everyone out that applies for online ordination. I have worked very hard to get where I am. Many people may not take it serious, but for those of us who do, it is truly a wonderful thing!

  7. Seems like the question is:
    Does airsoft training to develop and reinforce proper tactical group dynamics outweigh the bad muscle/mental habits that can be acquired handling faux weapons?
    Not an expert. Just seems like a bad tradeoff.Please visit my website,You can get more information click here:
