Founded in 1886, the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) has a mission to preserve the knowledge and practice of historical Judaism. Today, it is the leading institution of Jewish learning and spiritual center of Conservative Judaism in the United States. By educating students through a variety of degree and adult enrichment programs, JTS prepares leaders for hundreds of congregations, schools, universities, federations, summer camps, and Jewish cultural organizations worldwide. In addition to its degree programs, JTS also offers professional training programs through its various institutes, centers, and conferences, as well as community-focused learning, including online classes, a pre-college summer institute, and public lectures and events.
