In Israel as in America, there are seminaries that are supervised by
the Orthodox or Hasidic board of rabbis. (The best example of this in
America is New York's Yeshiva University, but in various parts of NY,
there are also smaller seminaries, which are under the supervision of
a rabbinical council) To get in, you have to take a test, be
formally admitted, pass your courses, etc. They are very stringent
at most seminaries, whether Catholic or Protestant or Jewish. Just
reading the Bible doesn't get a person admitted.
