Public Events at JTS

JTS’s public lectures and events articulate a vision of what Judaism in North America is and might become. They feature engaging personalities—scholars, writers, artists, and community leaders—who bring contemporary issues into dialogue with Jewish texts, values, traditions, and themes. 

JTS also welcomes over a thousand individuals to our free, open-to-the-public High Holiday services every year. 

Event Topics Include:

  • Prayer and spirituality
  • Israel
  • Ethics and public policy
  • Music and visual culture
  • Interreligious issues
  • Judaism in the public sphere

Many JTS events are livestreamed, which will be noted in the event listing. We invite synagogues and other Jewish communal organizations to hold public screenings of these outstanding programs. To learn more, contact publicevents@jtsa.edu.
