New Jersey approved plans for Touro College to open a Jewish medical school. The privately funded, $50 million project now needs the approval of the American Medical Association’s Liaison Committee on Medical Education. If okayed, the Touro University College of Medicine will be the second Jewish-sponsored medical school in the country, the college said in a release. Touro College, which has its roots in New York’s Orthodox Jewish community, also is seeking to open a medical school in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood. The school currently operates campuses in three U.S. states — New York, California and Florida — and eight countries.
