The health and well-being of students are our priority.

Health Insurance Requirement
All full-time and/or residential JTS students must have health insurance. All full-time and residential students are automatically enrolled and charged for Columbia Health, regardless of whether or not they waive the Columbia Plan. We therefore encourage JTS students to utilize Columbia Health services.
The JTS Counseling Center is here to support JTS students. The Center’s staff includes a team of highly trained, licensed psychologists who offer a safe, nonjudgmental, and confidential environment where students can explore any issue of concern.
