Two graduate degrees

One concentrating on comparative religion and methodologies of cultural, historical and social analyses of religious traditions; and the other concentrating on Jewish history and theology in relation to other cultures and religions in the ANE (including an extra post-graduate 28 credits in Egyptology). This includes one year as a graduate student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
In my studies, Hebrew grammar of Tanakh was a major focus, since one cannot decipher texts without an advanced ability to read the language. I had some very excellent teachers who were rather "old school" and really put us thru the ringers in terms of knowledge of Biblical grammar

Being a graduate doesn't entitle you

Everyone starts at the bottom. If you have a REAL degree, engineering, accounting, medical or law degree, then you can start off with good money, even at the entry level. But if you have some bullshit degree in "women's studies" or "comparative religion", then you really aren't qualified for anything except for the most basic kinds of jobs.

6 years of graduate study in Judaica...

Plus at least a second Master's degree in a related area like comparative religion , near eastern studies, sometimed law or psychology.... preferably a PhD as well. Plus at least 1 year study in Israel, minimum. Plus, you have to have a 'Zenish' sense of insanity....being an axe-murderer helps in terms of dealing with people....
