Sabbath Observant Program

Temple is proud to offer one (1) spot each year in its categorical residency which accommodates Shabbat observant residents (Shomer Shabbos). Selection is via the regular NRMP match without a separate match number.

The Sabbath observant resident will complete all of the same rotations and work the same number of hours as those in the regular categorical program.

To accommodate the Sabbath schedule, the resident will not be expected to work on Friday night, Saturday or the following Jewish holidays: Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot (first 2 days), Shmini Atzeret, Simchat Torah, Passover (first 2 days and last 2 days), and Shavuot.

All interested applicants should apply through ERAS and then contact Dr. Marissa Blum upon being offered an interview.

If you would like to talk with current residents about the program, please reach out to Emily Levine (PGY-3), Zachary Daitch (PGY-2), and/or Ian Gleaner (PGY-1).
