Rabbi Jacqueline Romm Satlow /D. Confar, UMass Dartmouth PhotographicsI began my rabbinical school studies at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) during the 1989-1990 academic year. The first year of study for all HUC-JIR students, then and today, occurs in Jerusalem. Even before my first-year classes began, I was already living in Israel on a kibbutz near Be’er-Sheva. There I enrolled in an ulpan (intensive Hebrew language course) and worked in the refet (the dairy barn, where I milked cows). In July 1989, I found an apartment with an Israeli roommate near the HUC-JIR campus in Jerusalem.
