Schiff, second floor, (212) 678-8976,

Isha el Akhota (Sister to Sister), the JTS Women's Center, serves as an umbrella organization for women's programming at JTS. Run by student coordinators Cecelia Beyer and Arielle Cohen, with faculty supervision by Dr. Anne Lapidus Lerner, the center supports the religious, academic, and professional needs of JTS's diverse women's community. Programs typically include a Sukkah welcome and a Women's Seder, as well as events relating to professional and personal issues. Community members are encouraged to present programming ideas. The office is located just outside the Women's League Seminary Synagogue. The center also has a small refrigerator. Women who are nursing may use the private space and the refrigerator. Stop by the Office of Student Life (Unterberg 209) to sign out a key to use the nursing space.
