Rabbis

Rabbis are teachers and spiritual guides. Rabbis can be teachers in schools or Talmudic academies or can act as spiritual leaders of Synagogue communities.

They can run outreach movements and charities, act as hospital/ army/prison/university chaplains or in some cases, hold down everyday jobs without using their Rabbinic qualification.
