Jewish Theological Seminary of America

The Jewish Theological Seminary, one of the world’s leading centers of Jewish learning, integrates rigorous academic scholarship and teaching with a commitment to strengthening Jewish tradition, Jewish lives, and Jewish communities. JTS articulates and transmits a vision of Judaism that is learned and passionate, pluralist and authentic, traditional and egalitarian; one that is thoroughly grounded in Jewish texts, history, and practices, and fully engaged with the societies and cultures of the present. The Finkelstein Institute of JTS handles issues of interreligious engagement, public policy, and bio-ethics.
