Job Description for Rabbi

A rabbi is a spiritual leader within the Jewish faith, roughly equivalent to a priest or reverend in the Christian faith or an imam in the Islamic religion. Synagogues and their congregations are the most typical employer of rabbis, but schools, hospitals, and the military hire ordained rabbis to provide spiritual guidance and chaplaincy for persons who are adherents of the Jewish faith. In a congregational setting, a rabbi typically works to design worship services and offer spiritual teachings from the Torah. In this setting, the rabbi also offers comfort, advice, and guidance as necessary to the members of the synagogue. They officiate weddings, funerals, and other important events as required by the teachings of the Torah and the synagogue. Part of the job of a spiritual leader in any faith, including rabbis, is community outreach.
