Student Life—Summer Activities

The Jewish Theological Seminary is a wonderful place during the summer, both inside and outside the classroom. With sunny New York City as your playground, campus life truly shines. The Office of Student Life organizes a variety of student activities, including group trips to baseball games and many free NYC summer hotspots, such as the Monday Night Movie Festival in Bryant Park, New York Philharmonic concerts in Central Park, kayaking on the Hudson River, and the Central Park Summer Stage.

On our JTS campus and in our residence halls, we keep students active in the community by providing Shabbat dinners and picnic lunches, movie nights, ice cream socials, educational programs, and our weekly Shabbat softball game. The Va'ad Gemilut Hasadim: Susan and Jack Rudin Center for Community Outreach provides students with rewarding volunteer opportunities in the local community.
