Lay Leadership

Lay Leadership Development at JTS is led by our Board of Trustees. In addition, advisory boards for the academic programs include committees for specific projects for each school as well as special interest committees. Local cabinets round out our lay leadership structure and provide our donors and supporters with many ways to connect to the JTS community and to help further our mission to provide future Jewish leaders with the finest education possible.
