President Hirshman and Rabbi Sheftel Neuberger, President of Ner Israel Rabbinical College

Stevenson University has partnered with Baltimore’s Ner Israel Rabbinical College to create a two-year program—designed specifically for Ner Israel students—that allows them to complete a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Pre-Med focus and a minor in Medical Humanities, while accommodating their studies at Ner Israel.

“This is an innovative partnership that lets Ner Israel students take advantage of the best of what both of our institutions offer,” said President Elliot Hirshman. “The students will earn a B.A. in Talmudic Studies from Ner Israel and a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies from Stevenson. The students will also benefit from our pre-health advising, faculty mentoring, career preparation focus, and internships that will set the stage for graduate education.”

Ner Israel Rabbinical College is a world-renowned 85-year-old Yeshiva based in Pikesville, Md., that trains Talmudic scholars who become rabbis and educators as well as pursue careers in other professions.
