Registration Now Open for Two Tikvah High School Programs One Each For Day-School Students Public/Private School Students
This year, in addition to our Tikvah Scholars Program we are running a new program in partnership with the Maimonides Fund which will begin in the summer of 2018. The Maimonides Scholars Program is geared towards Jewish public and private school students who are motivated to learn more about Jewish philosophy, culture and history. Students who will attend this two-week immersive summer institute come with a sparked passion to learn more about the intersection between their Judaism and the modern age. The program aims to flame that fire by offering courses with seminar leaders and lecturers who encourage dialogue and debate.

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.

Yiddish attracts a wide range of Jews and non-Jews alike, and for a variety of reasons—religion (it’s still the spoken language for most frum Ashkenazim), politics (a language and culture that affirms Ashkenazi Jews’ rootedness in Europe and the diaspora, rather than in Israel), culture and history (despite the past half-century’s renaissance in Yiddish scholarship, there’s still so, so much more left to study and explore), and much more. And although I didn’t know it when I applied to YIVO’s summer program, there’s a similarly wide a range of Yiddish programs in existence today for the nascent Yiddishist.
