Hide Profile

The Jewish Theological Seminary was founded in New York in 1886 then reorganized in 1902 under the leadership of Solomon Schechter. Considered the fountainhead of the Conservative Movement in Judaism, the Seminary consists of a rabbinical school and graduate and undergraduate programs in Jewish studies. During the first half of the century it also included a Jewish teachers training institute. The Seminary's heads have been: Sabato Morais (1886-1897), Solomon Schechter (1902-1915), Cyrus Adler (1915-1940), Louis Finkelstein (1940-1972), Gerson Cohen (1972-1986), and Ismar Schorsch (1986-present).
