New York’s Jewish Theological Seminary has officially broken ground on its “21st Century Campus” renovation and expansion, designed by Obama Presidential Library architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien.

The full project will comprise a new resident hall, conference facilities, an auditorium/performing arts space, and a state-of-art library containing the world’s largest collection of Judaic and Hebraic books, manuscripts and scrolls. Advanced educational technology will be featured throughout.

“As we break ground on our new project, we also break ground on a new chapter for American Judaism,” said Marc Gary, executive vice chancellor and COO at JTS, in a press statement. “The exterior of our new buildings will be brick, but the interior will be filled with Torah study, music, camaraderie, debate, new ideas, and new modalities.”

Funding for the project was obtained through the sale of a portion of the campus’ land, estimated to have netted the seminary $96 million. The purchaser, developer Savanna, is planning to construct a 32-story condo building on the site designed by Beyer Blinder Belle Architects that will add 170 apartments to the neighborhood.
