American Jewish University selling ‘all or part’ of campus

After some 45 years occupying an iconic piece of real estate in Los Angeles, American Jewish University plans to sell “all or part” of its 14 hectare campus, writes Asaf Shalev for JTA. The campus in the Bel Air neighbourhood is home to the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, a seminary that ordains rabbis for Judaism’s Conservative movement.

American Jewish University announced the decision in a letter to its students that said the sale would help pay for more academic offerings and community programmes as the institution increasingly turns digital.

The decision to sell off its campus makes the school the second major Jewish educational institution to put its building up for sale in recent years. Hebrew College in suburban Boston announced its campus sale in 2018 and moved into a shared space with other Jewish organisations last year.
