Uniting and strengthening both institutions
In 2015, the Hebrew Theological College officially joined the Touro College and University System (TCUS), an affiliation which has and will continue to strengthen both institutions by coordinating and leveraging the respective resources of each.
Through this partnership, a pathway will be created for qualified HTC graduates to gain preferred acceptance into Touro graduate and professional schools; HTC students will, in time, have enhanced course offerings on campus; and access to Touro’s Division of Online Education and Touro University Worldwide. “The fundamental principles on which HTC and Touro were founded are closely aligned—strengthening the Jewish community and a commitment to academic excellence,” according to Dr. Alan Kadish, president and CEO of TCUS. Said Brian Levinson, chairman of the HTC board of directors, “HTC is very excited to move forward with the Touro partnership. The opportunities presented to HTC, the Chicago community and the Midwest, through the talent and expertise offered by this collaboration, will have a profound impact.” Pictured above (l-r): Rabbi Moshe D.
