Raise your own personal questions of faith, spirituality, diversity, social justice and others. Prepare yourself for the rabbinate or for a career as a cantor in a journey of self-discovery that forms character and conscience.
The teachers and mentors at our college help you to find meaning in your own spiritual journey. They support you in finding your spiritual expression and to discern the divine. We encourage you to integrate this awareness into your daily life – into your prayers, social action work, ritual practice, and studies.

In Tune

At Abraham Geiger College, we aim to educate rabbis and cantors who are in tune with modern society and yet offer an authentic interpretation of the Jewish tradition.

Semikhah and Investiture

The Abraham Geiger College at the University of Potsdam oversees the academic degrees of Bachelor & Master of Jewish Theology. These are the basis on which rabbinic ordination may be granted subject to unanimous consent by the college faculty as a way to confer religious authority. The same applies to the investiture as Jewish cantor.
