About Chancellor Eisen
Under the leadership of its seventh chancellor, Arnold Eisen, JTS has transformed the education of religious, pedagogical, professional, and lay leaders for North American Jewry. One of the foremost scholars of North American Judaism, Chancellor Eisen has focused on graduating highly skilled, innovative leaders who bring Judaism alive in ways that speak authentically to Jews at a time of rapid and far-reaching change.
JTS maintains a dedication to high-level scholarship, while expanding the reach of that scholarship beyond the campus so that Jews worldwide can learn with its faculty, fellows, and speakers, both in-person and online. The school has renewed its commitment to social justice and brought a new focus to the art of prayer, establishing the Block/Kolker Center for Spiritual Arts. Israel education is stronger, and pastoral training is now woven into the curriculum of future clergy through the Center for Pastoral Education.
Finally, under Chancellor Eisen’s leadership, JTS is embarking on a historic project to re-imagine its Morningside Heights campus, creating a physical space that fosters Jewish community, learning, and innovation, and that strengthens JTS as a hub of focused inquiry and discussion about the transformation and continuation of our tradition and community.
