Beginning in August and spanning all the way up to Shavuot, JTS is partnering with other Conservative Movement seminaries and institutions to offer seven-lecture series featuring outstanding scholars and teachers from across the movement. Synagogues are invited to become ScholarStream co-sponsors so that their members may enjoy all of the lectures at no charge.
