The Tikvah Programs for 2014

Our friends at the Tikvah Fund have been engaging for years in a splendid effort to offer deeper education to adults in the bonds between Western civilization and the United States and the history of Judaism. Now the Fund is announcing a series of exciting seminars for 2014, and soliciting applications for attendees. 

Tikvah programs bring exceptional individuals from America, Israel, and around the world to New York City to study economics, war and grand strategy, and Jewish thought. Our extraordinary faculty includes Peter Berkowitz, Frederick W. Kagan, William Kristol, Meir Soloveichik, Ruth Wisse, and Dara Horn, among many more.

Programs run 1 to 3 weeks starting next spring. All participants receive generous stipends to cover their travel, lodging, and investment of time.
