JTS Is on a Mission

Conservative seminary announces new initiatives, funding

Print Email
The Jewish Theological Seminary.(Wikipedia)

The Jewish Theological Seminary, which is the academic and spiritual center of Conservative Judaism in America, announced that it has received significant new funding toward the implementation of six new principles:

• Scholarship in Service to Judaism and the Jewish Community

• Excellence in Teaching and Learning

• Synergy

• Partnerships

• Reaching New Types of Students

• Engaging and Strengthening Conservative Judaism and the Religious Center

Which were all things it presumably was doing before (hopefully, anyway).

So why is this mission statement different from all other mission statements? Well, promises Chancellor Arnold Eisen, “There will be more news to share as we move into the fall semester—exhilarating news that will vibrate through the halls of 3080 Broadway and well beyond our walls.”

Allison Hoffman is planning to schlep up to Morningside Heights on Monday for commencement; she’ll have a report then. Should be some interesting news to break. Stay tuned!
