Professor Arnold M. Eisen
Chancellor, The Jewish Theological Seminary
“Pastoral Education: Before, During and After Covid-19”
 
Arnold M. Eisen, one of the world's foremost authorities on American Judaism, is the seventh chancellor of The Jewish Theological Seminary. Since taking office in 2007, Chancellor Eisen has transformed the education of religious, pedagogical, professional, and lay leaders for North American Jewry, with a focus on graduating highly skilled, innovative leaders who bring Judaism alive in ways that speak authentically to Jews at a time of rapid and far-reaching change.
 
During his tenure, Chancellor Eisen has placed significant emphasis on strengthening Jewish learning in our communities, creating programs that extend the reach of JTS’s scholarship and resources beyond the campus to Jewish learners around the world. These programs include expanded access to the treasures of The JTS Library through increased digitization, new online and on-campus courses for the public, a new JTS Fellows program to increase opportunities for adult learning, and the development of JTS Torah Online, a rich menu of videos, podcasts, and Torah commentary.
 
Chancellor Eisen’s initiatives also include the Block / Kolker Center for Spiritual Arts; the interfaith Center for Pastoral Education; the Hendel Center for Ethics and Justice; and the Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue. Other initiatives strengthen early childhood, experiential, and Israel education.
