As far as I understand, in some Jewish communities men weren't allowed to go to rabbinical school until *after* they'd raised a family, worked a regular job, and been through some shit. How are you going to adequately offer pastoral care to a community if you haven't yet lived much of a life?

I have no idea if this is true, but I've always liked the idea.
