Tikvah Project on Jewish Thought

Through a generous donation from The Tikvah Fund, Princeton University established The Tikvah Project on Jewish Thought at Princeton, a  term grant that funded projects from 2007-2014.  Devoted to bringing Jewish thought into conversation with the broader historical, philosophical, and theological traditions of the West and beyond, the project has sponsored a number of initiatives over the years including bringing visiting fellows in Jewish thought to Princeton, workshops and working groups on Jewish thought at Princeton, and a two-week summer seminar for undergraduate and graduate students from around the world. 


Beginning in the summer of 2014, the summer seminar will be re-located to The Tikvah Center in New York City. Outstanding faculty from the summer program  at Princeton will teach week-long institutes in Jewish thought, literature, and history. These faculty include Leora Batnitkzy, Moshe Halbertal, Christine Hayes, Daniel Gordis, Dara Horn, Micah Goodman, and more. Find out more about this program and about the Tikvah Center at www.tikvahfund.org.
