Religious Life at JTS

Religious life at JTS is a rich and diverse tapestry of worship, study, and social engagement. Highlights include daily services as well as many Shabbat and festival celebrations and social justice work, including volunteering in the community. Our religious life programming is housed in a variety of arenas, including the Women's League Seminary Synagogue, and the Office of Student Life.

Our Jewish Life directors help foster community in the residence halls and on campus through Jewish cultural, religious, and educational programming; home hospitality; and their daily interactions with students. In addition, JTS faculty and staff include many rabbis, cantors and educators who participate regularly in religious life on campus and are available to students for personal and professional counseling.

In addition to programming on the JTS campus and in the residence halls, students can take advantage of the rich Jewish communities at Columbia/Barnard Hillel and numerous synagogues and Jewish organizations on the Upper West Side and around New York City.
