Chancellor Schwartz is a groundbreaking scholar of American Jewish history, with more than three decades of experience. The eighth chancellor of JTS, she is also the first woman to serve in this role in the seminary’s 134-year history. As an educator, Chancellor Schwartz is focused on training future leaders through studies of Jewish texts, ideas, and history. An innovator, she played an instrumental role in introducing Jewish gender studies into the JTS curriculum. As a scholar, she shines a light on American Judaism, Jewish representation in American culture, and the contribution of women to Jewish life and culture. A prolific author, she has published numerous books and articles, including The Rabbi’s Wife, a penetrating examination of the role of rabbis’ wives in the development of American Jewish life, for which she received the National Jewish Book Award for Modern Thought, and The Emergence of Jewish Scholarship in America: The Publication of the Jewish Encyclopedia.
