Esteemed Alumni

Linked with Leaders

JTS alumni bring a profound understanding of Judaism and a commitment to repairing the world to leadership roles in over 600 congregations and schools, 100 Jewish organizations worldwide, 150 major universities, 35 JCCs, federations, and camps, as well as new and innovative organizations, including Avodah, Mechon Hadar, Ikar, and Encounter.

“For every single serious Jewish question, the way that I think about it is deeper and more complex because of my years of growth at JTS…. I have all of these lenses and paradigms for taking words on a page of text and making them come to life.”
