On Oct. 28, 2010, the New York Theological Seminary and the Alliance for Jewish Renewal signed a formal memorandum of understanding that engaged the two institutions in a unique partnership within the NYTS Doctor of Ministry program. The agreement initiated a shared and coordinated program of studies leading to the award of the NYTS Doctor of Ministry degree for Jewish clergy.
Candidates will take part in the NYTS-Auburn multi-faith Doctor of Ministry track, while NYTS and ALEPH faculty serve as advisors for the projects and theses. The NYTS Doctor of Ministry degree is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.
The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
