Chancellor Arnold M. Eisen established The Jewish Theological Seminary's Arts Advisory Board in spring 2011 for the purpose of creating and sustaining arts initiatives throughout JTS's five schools: Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies (undergraduate); William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education; The Graduate School; The Rabbinical School; and H. L. Miller Cantorial School and College of Jewish Music. Together with JTS faculty and lay leaders, the board consists of artists and other professionals from a variety of visual, musical, performing, and literary arts organizations, businesses, and foundations across the United States. Its mission focuses on programs and projects with distinct creative and educational objectives that can be integrated throughout JTS curricula.

JTS Presents: The Sacred Power of Jazz, Featuring The Juilliard Jazz Ensemble with Rodney Jones
An evening of inspirational music at JTS highlighting the rich connection between religion and the sacred power of jazz music.
This concert is the culmination of The Juilliard School's third daylong residency of educational and inspirational performances and master classes at JTS, and the first of the 2013–2014 academic year. "These residencies and concerts by the Juilliard School," says Dr. Alan Cooper, Elaine Ravich Professor of Jewish Studies and provost of JTS, are a significant step forward in our effort to make the creative arts a vital presence in the life and culture of The Jewish Theological Seminary. The JTS Arts Initiative, launched by Chancellor Arnold M. Eisen with the energetic and able support of our distinguished Arts Advisory Board, is already causing a stir with exciting new ventures such as this one with Juilliard-and there is much more to come."
