The Tikvah Institute for High School Students at Yale is an intensive two-week (June 25—July 6, 2017) immersion in the challenges confronting the Jewish community in Israel, America, and throughout the West. In the company of excellent teachers and elite high school students from across the North American diaspora, we will ask the most fundamental Jewish and human questions—about freedom and tradition, love and friendship, war and peace, wealth and poverty, nations and individuals, and sustaining faith in the modern condition. We encourage you to apply to this program and to join a growing network of accomplished students and rising Jewish and campus leaders. Accepted participants enjoy lively relationships with recent alumni and faculty and opportunities to learn with Tikvah beyond the summer.

Seminar topics include:

  • Friendship
  • War, Peace, and the Future of the Middle East
  • Economics and the Human Good
  • Women in Modern Jewish History
  • The Gift of Death? Technology, Power, and Playing God
