The Jerusalem Post recently ran an excellent feature on the Tikvah Fellowship, a New York-based program for which I’ve served as a lecturer on issues of war and morality and foreign policy.
A project of the Tikvah Fund, the Tikvah Fellowship provides fellows with a one-of-a-kind paid opportunity to:(1) Study the great ideas of classical and Jewish thought in areas such as economics, love and family life, and war and morality;(2) Advance a project related to Jewish life and/or Israeli society;(3) Learn with an international class of fellow participants; and(4) Meet and work with leading thinkers and practitioners in the fields of Jewish thought and history, Israeli and American politics, religious leadership, journalism, economics, education, and community life.Via Meadia
has been lucky to have several Tikvah fellows join our team as writers, and WRM was a faculty member during Tikvah’s inaugural year.Other faculty members include William Kristol, Victor Davis Hanson, James Capretta, Peter Berkowitz, Ruth Gavison, Yuval Levin, and Michael Walzer. Courses offered in the past have included “Religion and State in Modern Democracy,” “War, Morality, and Statesmanship,” “Political Foundings,” and “Wealth and Modern Democracy.”The fellowship is accepting applications for the 2013 until January 31, so be sure to explore this opportunity soon if you or someone you know is interested.
