Student Life—Summer Activities

The Jewish Theological Seminary is a wonderful place during the summer, both inside and outside the classroom. With sunny New York City as your playground, campus life truly shines. The Office of Student Life organizes a variety of student activities.

On our JTS campus and in our residence halls, we keep students active in the community by providing Shabbat dinners and picnic lunches, movie nights, ice cream socials, and educational programs. The Va'ad Gemilut Hasadim: Susan and Jack Rudin Center for Community Outreach provides students with rewarding volunteer opportunities in the local community.  

Application, financial aid, and residence information will be available in January 2015. For questions about Summer Sessions at JTS, please contact summersessions@jtsa.edu or (212) 678-8966.
