Each summer, JustCity brings rising juniors and seniors together to live on JTS's New York City campus, take college-level courses, engage in social justice work, and build community through vibrant Jewish programming. 

  • Learn firsthand from changemakers throughout New York City, gain the tools to make lasting impact, and create personal action projects to lead change at home and in the world.
  • Explore the Jewish values that impel us to transform society, develop and strengthen your leadership skills, and deepen community while experiencing the excitement of college life.
  • Form lasting friendships with a diverse network of ambitious teens from around the country.
