How do you abbreviate rabbi?
In English, I have seen Rav. as an abbreviation, but it is not common. Most often Rabbi is used in full.
In Hebrew, there is R. ('ר) which is the abbreviation for Rabbi.
In Hebrew, there is R. ('ר) which is the abbreviation for Rabbi.
The accepted plural form in English is rabbis. However, it iscustomary among English speaking Jews to use the Hebrew plural formfor English words derived from Hebrew. Therefore the Anglo-Hebraicplural for "rabbi" would be "rabbanim".
No. Most Jews do not believe in demonic possession. . Answer: There are (possibly apocryphal) accounts of Rabbis doing exorcism.However, this is uncommon and definitely not standard practice.
A rabbi is a Jewish religious leader and teacher. If a Jewishperson has a religious question, they usually go to a rabbi. Rabbisalso give spiritual advice. They are not appointed by god. a rabbi is a spiriual leader. each community has at least one rabbi. Rabbis ARE Jewish, and they're teachers and …clergy people. (MORE)
A rabbi by Hebrew definition is a teacher. But really, it's more reffered to someone who teaches Judaism. I should know, I'm Jewish!
There is no specific clothings a rabbi is required to wear.Generally, he will have modest, dignified clothing, and a kippah(and/or a hat) on his head.
there are no cures unless you act immediatley and and go to your familys veteranarian or doctor if you or anyone in your family has been bitten by a dog with rabbies or if your dog has rabbies. the cure is a shot... a painful shot.
You have to attend rabbinical school and spend time in Israel. There are many Jewish scholars who are authorized by the many Jewish courts to teach and ordain Rabbis. Obviously if a person is looking to be a legitimate Jewish Rabbi by the code of Jewish law this excludes reform/conservative/recon…structionist/progressive "Judaism" - so then there is a full spectrum curriculum to be studied intensely and be tested on the code of Jewish law. Programs range from 1 yr study to 7 yrs of studying - obviously depending on your prior background/ current knowledge...it also depends on why a person would be studying... For the knowledge, for the degree, or for the practice... If you want listed institutions and general information about this, feel free to inquire. If someone wants to become a more liberal Jewish Rabbi, such as a Conservative, Reform, etc. Rabbi, that requires typically going to a seminary for that organization and graduating as a Rabbi. Then that movement ordains the person and they are fit to become a Rabbi. The education-ordination process takes between 2-6 years depending on the depth of study and particular strain of liberal Judaism chosen. (MORE)
Any rabbit/bunny could have rabies, which is why it is best to NOT pick up stranded or wild rabbits, if you do, I would recommend pick them up with plastic gloves or gardening gloves, whatever will protect you from being bit by a rabbit. Then place him/her in a cardboard box. (Tall enough that he/sh…e can't hop out.) Then place a net over the top of the box. As quickly as possible, get him/her to a vets office. The vet there will know how to give him/her a rabies shot. Still, I do NOT recommend anyone to pick up a roaming wild rabbit . (MORE)
Yes. It is encouraged. A rabbi is considered in many ways to be unable to completely fulfill the responsibilities of his job if he is NOT married.
Even though a rabbi is a teacher and a member of the Jewish clergy, they can do MANY things: 1. Doctor or Mohel to perform Jewish Circumcision 2. Write Jewish Books 3. Kosher Food Supervision 4. Jewish Politics 5. Jewish Courts 6. Jewish Therapy 7. Jewish Lifecycle Events
That depends on where the wedding takes place. -- In classical, Judaic, Rabbinic law, no Rabbi or official of any kind is needed in order to make a marriage 'official'. Nobody 'marries' the couple. They marry themselves and each other, by mutual consent and a series of agreements and action…s, that we don't need to go into just now. -- However, in most modern countries, the presence of a state-certified official is required to order to create an official marriage that is recognized by the state. In the US, these vary by State, but typically include judges, JPs, clergy, the captain of the ship outside of territorial waters, etc. At a modern-day Jewish wedding, the Rabbi is there to "officiate" as the agent of the state. From the Jewish point of view, the Rabbi is there in his typical role ... as expert in Jewish law and as teacher. He 'conducts' the ceremony, much as a 'master of ceremonies' might, observing each detail of the procedure to assure that the process of marriage is conducted as Jewish law requires, and that the validity of this marriage cannot be disputed in the future on religious grounds. Finally, as teacher, he may be called upon to speak a message for the couple, of inspiration, attachment to tradition and heritage, and the hope of the community for their success in their new relationship and their new life in the house of Israel. The Rabbi does not "pronounce" anyone "Man and Wife". He monitors the process, in order to guarantee that they become man and wife to each other, in accordance with the strict application of Jewish law. (MORE)

Absolutely! In truth, as Judaism teaches that a man is incomplete if he is not married, it's virtually a requirement for rabbis to marry to perform their duties.
According to tradition, we may ascribe that title to Abraham, since he was the spiritual authority of his time, in matters of serving God, etc. More formally, the Rabbinate as we know it was instituted in Exodus ch.18 and Deuteronomy ch.17, with Moses as the highest authority of his time.

If Rabbi is used as an honorific (like Mr. or Dr.) in an context where it would be obvious that such a person is a rabbi, such as a transcript of the Talmud, Rabbi can be abbreviated as R. (in English) or .×¨ (in Hebrew). However, this only works in a clear context and most often the word "Rabbi" …is unabbreviated. (MORE)

Reform and Conservative Answer Rabbis often follow the custom of wearing robes during the Shabbat and holiday services. The origin of these Robes is 19th Century Europe, where Rabbis were closely assocated with university professors (who wore robes). Also, most rabbis will wear a kippah on their …heads, at least during services. A Tallit, or prayer shawl is also very common, if not obligatory. Some modern congregations, require no special clothing at all, either for male or female Rabbis, other than a kippah and tallit. Orthodox Answer I will only be discussing the traditional garb of MALE Jews herein, as only men can become Rabbis in the Orthodox tradition. Some reformed sects allow for women to become rabbis, and generally they wear some feminized form of what the male rabbi's would wear. An Orthodox (traditional, very religious) rabbi will wear a kippah (or, in Yiddish -- a Yarmulke -- the little round cap that fits over the top of the head). He will also generally wear a black hat on top of that -- especially if he is Hasidim (a very religious and tradition-oriented sect of Jews) -- and the type of black hat that is worn will vary based on sect and local tradition, but common versions include a black hat that looks like a cowboy hat, a black hat that looks like a short top-hat, and also -- common with Russian Jewish lineage -- a black hat covered with a ring of animal fur. Hasidic Jews will also have the long, curley ringlets on either side of his head (where sideburns would be) called Peyes . An orthodox rabbi will always wear black pants and a black waistcoat with a white button down shirt. Modern Orthodox rabbi's do not hold to this level of Sniut (the laws of Jewish modesty). An orthodox rabbi can also be found to have strings visibly dangling from his pockets -- this is from a traditional garment worn under the shirt called tzit-tzit. Tzit-tzit is like a t-shirt with the sides cut out (so it drapes over the shoulders, with four bundles of strings that hang down from each of the four corners of the garment, which are generally allowed to hang outside the clothing. They represent G-d's presence on all corners of the world (omnipresence). When praying -- or dovening, in Hebrew -- the rabbi will cover his head and shoulders with a rug-like cloth called Tallit, which all men wear while praying (women do not). Also, while praying a Rabbi will wear a little black box attached to leather cables tied around his forehead and forearm. These little boxes are called Tefillin and contain inscriptions of fundamental Jewish prayers. Only men wear them, and donning Teffilin requires special prayers and purity of thought. (MORE)
Rabbi means "teacher", but rabbis are also clergy people who can do other things: 1. Write books 2. Kosher food supervision 3. Religious counseling 4. Religious school principals 5. Religious camp owners
You can think of it as a college-level degree. You spend enough time studying the subjects that a rabbi is expected to know, and developing the ability to go further in Judaic studies on your own. Then your academic record of studies, conduct, and exams is reviewed by a 'board' of people who h…ave accomplished the same program previously and are recognized by their peers as some of the best. If they agree among themselves, then they confer the 'degree', and you're a rabbi. Very much the same process as getting your BS, your MS, or your PhD. In difficulty and the length of time it takes, it seems to me that it's roughly between a BS and an MS. Answer: To become a Rabbi one must master various aspects of Jewish Law. At vaious stages he is tested by his teacher, or more likely today by a senior Rabbi under who's supervision his teacher or teachers work. When he is ready his teacher, or the Senior Rabbi, will give him Smicha, Rabbical Ordination. The same as Moses gave Joshua and has been passed down teacher to student in an unbroken chain since. As a prerequisite to learning Smicha (being accepted in a Rabbical Ordination program) a candidate would have to be an objservent Jew with several years of study, particular Talmud study, already already under his belt. Other movements (Conservative, Reformed, Reconstructionist, Messianic, . . .) do not focus on Jewish Law their Rabbis function more like priests or ministers. They therefore are trained differently in a college like setting. (MORE)
The question is very ambiguous ... we don't know who is being addressed. Any Jew who is capable of satisfactorily completing the course of studies, and demonstrating to a court of rabbis his mastery and grasp of the history, culture, and laws, can become a rabbi.
Technically no, since a vicar is a Christian spiritual leader whereas a rabbi is Jewish. However, a rabbi can be a bit like a vicar, a lawyer, a teacher and a community leader all rolled into one. They have extensive knowledge of the Torah and may lead community worship as well as providing answers …to people's spiritual questions - many are remarkably adept at answering similar questions from Christians, Muslims and atheists in addition to Jews. They also have expertise in Judaic law and are able to provide guidance in a range of related matters - when combined with their Torah knowledge, this allows them to teach Jewish education. Finally, many rabbis have completed courses in counselling and may organise community projects such as youth groups, community days out, parties and other events. (MORE)
The rabbi is like the holy teacher, priest or in other words a church priest.
Traditional Answer: Many Orthodox Rabbis do not shave their faces because the Torah specifies that men are to not shave the 'corners' of their head. So that they don't accidentally violate this mitzvah, they don't shave their faces at all. There are some Orthodox Rabbis that remove or shape their …beards, particularly among modern Orthodox Rabbis. Among Non-Orthodox Rabbis, the practice of wearing a beard is rare (particularly among female rabbis.) Answer that is not based on Jewish law or custom: For those that do, it hearkens back to ancient near eastern culture; from ancient times throughout the middle east, a beard was a badge of manhood, and as shaving was not widely practiced until the time of Alexander the Great, many men simply did not shave. Hence, very old men often had long beards, and in the case of scholars and learned men, the longer the beard the greater the authority, because the more years a given man had been a scholar. It was a cultural habit, that overtime became a cultural tradition across all Semitic groups, and it stayed even as the Semitic within the Jews of Europe was diluted. Among Jews, secular or religious, again a beard is a badge of manhood; you can hide behind immaturity for so long while you can't grow a beard, but, once it comes in, there is no hiding that you're not a youngster anymore, you're a man, that is the attitude among Semites, Jew or Arab. In Judaism, as a sort of "throw back" to more ancient Semitic culture, the beard is revered, but it is also a source of angst for the immature male, especially in Israel. The youth feels oppressed by his bearded elders while longing to have his own beard that can't seem to come in fast enough. (MORE)

First, not all rabbis teach. Of those who do, some teach general religion, others specific areas of halacha (Jewish law), others teach Talmud, some teach Kabbalah, and some teach completely secular subjects such as English, Physics, Math, History, etc.
Rabbis are a diverse demographic. In general terms, however, Rabbis tend to be married and have a large family, to have gone to Yeshiva and to learn Torah in the present as well, at least part-time; and in many cases to teach Torah and/or to be at the helm of a congregation. Most Rabbis see it as a …calling of theirs to answer questions in Jewish law; and many times they provide such services to their congregants as personal and marriage counseling. Many Rabbis officiate at Jewish weddings and the like. (MORE)

There were several sages by that name; one of them (in Tiberias,3rd century CE) collated the Jerusalem Talmud. But the one whomyou're asking about is probably the following: Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai (1st century CE), disciple of Hillel,found favor in the eyes of the Roman leader Vespasian, for a rea…sonexplained in the Talmud (Gittin 56a-b), and was granted a request.He requested that the Romans (who had already begun the process ofthe Second Destruction) spare the town of Yavneh and itsTorah-scholars. Vespasion acquiesced (Talmud, ibid), and RabbiYohanan gathered whatever Torah-sages he could, to Yavneh. After the Destruction, it was these sages (Rabbi Eliezer, RabbiYehoshua, Rabbi Akiva and many others) who redeemed Jewishcaptives, distributed charity, and rebuilt whatever they could. In matters of Torah, they recorded the laws of the Temple so thatthese wouldn't be forgotten, and redacted the details of suchMishna-tractates as Shekalim, Yoma, and Tamid. They finalized thetext of the Haggadah shel Pesach (Passover Seder), composed prayersfor the rebuilding of the Temple, and set in motion the process ofredacting the entire Mishna, an effort which would be completed acentury later. Through all these actions, they gave the Jewish people new hope,showing them that the nation could continue even under the newcircumstances, with its Torah and traditions (Oral Law) clarifiedand accessible.
