MJR has a 3-tier faculty. Instructors who hold a graduate degree are full Professors, while those with an undergraduate degree are Associate Professors and those who teach without formal education (but have been deemed suitable based on halakha,  life experience, and depth of informal study) are Morim (Instructors). There is no difference in pay scale, but academic tradition recognizes level of study by differentiation in the honorific. 

*Several faculty positions are currently available.

Guest Lecturers

MJR offers a few courses taught by professors at other institutions via pre-recorded lecture series. These are offered at whichever tuition rate is lower (ours or the host institution’s). The lecturers on this list are well-esteemed in their respective fields.
