The Tikvah Fund was founded in the conviction that ideas matter, and that great leadership depends on their articulation and development. We believe that Jewish, conservative, and Israeli intellectual leadership – whether social, cultural, economic, or religious – can help create a flourishing future for the Jewish people, for Israel, and for the West as a whole. Supporting programs, publications, and partner institutions, Tikvah Israel is privileged to help advance this mission with a broad community of thinkers and practitioners in the State of Israel.
Nearly 2,000 students, young, and senior professionals have participated in Tikvah Fund seminars, delving into the foundations of law, economics, Zionism, strategy, and more. Here’s what some members of our outstanding alumni community have to say about their experience.
