Joel Alter

Rabbi Joel Alter is Director of Admissions for JTS’ Rabbinical and Cantorial schools. Previously, he served for sixteen years in pluralistic Jewish day schools as a teacher, rabbinic leader, and administrator. His commitments to advancing institutions organized around Torah study and Jewish living inform his past and present roles. Joel earned his BA in Jewish History at Columbia University; his rabbinic ordination and an MA in Jewish Education are from JTS. He received additional training at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. [Shabbat, Torah, Hebrew, hiking, good friends, and good food are among the things that bring him joy.]
