Following Grant's Tomb, the group headed the the Jewish Theological Seminary. The Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS or JTSA) is one of the academic and spiritual centers of Conservative Judaism, and a major center for academic scholarship in Jewish studies.
Following JTS, we headed to The American Museum of Natural History, which is one of the largest and most celebrated museums in the world. Located in park-like grounds across the street from Central Park, the museum complex contains 27 interconnected buildings housing 45 permanent exhibition halls, in addition to a planetarium and a library. The museum is known for being the setting of the movie, Night at the Museum, and many students were interested in seeing those exhibits showcased in the movie. The afternoon drew to an end with time spent in the museum's planetarium.
The highlight of our day however was Pre-Theatre dinner at Abigael's followed by the Broadway Show, Cinderalla, starring Fran Dresher.
The students had a jam packed day! They learned quite a bit about New York and Judaism while enjoying some very unique Manhattan experiences!
