Our Alumni

JTS alumni are consistently spotlighted in national “top rabbi” lists. They lead international pulpits and have founded organizations such as Avodah and Encounter. JTS religious leadership includes work within Conservative Judaism and beyond—careers as diverse as a military chaplain in Japan or an artistic Judaic ironworker in Indiana.

    Rabbi Ethan Witkovsky, Assistant Rabbi, Park Avenue Synagogue, New York City
    JTS gave me tools to navigate the sea of Torah and Jewish living that I apply to all aspects of my rabbinate today. These tools are invaluable to me as I work to be an innovative and authentic rabbi for today’s world.
