By a synagogue: All rabbis and cantors employed by a synagogue, in whatever role, are eligible to participate.
By a non-profit: As long as you are “exercising your ministry” in your work, you are eligible to participate. For example, if you are employed by a day school where you are teaching or serve as clergy on a college campus, you would be eligible.
By a for-profit: If you are working as a clergy member through employment at a for-profit organization (for example, as a chaplain at a for-profit hospital) you are eligible.
Self-employed: All self-employed rabbis and cantors who are exercising their ministry are eligible to join.
*Please note - Applicants for participation who are not graduates/professional members of the listed organizations will be required to provide documentation of educational and ordination equivalency, as is required by our bylaws.
