Welcome to The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization.
In September 2009, thanks to a generous donation from The Tikvah Fund, New York University School of Law inaugurated The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization. The Center, which is situated at 22 Washington Square, formally opened its doors in academic year 2009-2010. The foundational premise of the Center is 1) that the study of Jewish law can profit immensely from insights gained from general jurisprudence; and 2) that Jewish law and Jewish civilization can provide illuminating perspectives both on the general study of law as a per se academic discipline, and on the reflection on law as a central social institution refracting the most important issues in our society.

The Tikvah Center's annual reunion will take place on July 23rd-25th, 2013. We are pleased to host it this year in Israel at IDC Herzliya. We look forward to creating a wonderful event for past, present and future Tikvah Fellows and Scholars to mingle both socially and academically.
The Tikvah Center is pleased to announce its newest group of Fellows and Scholars for Academic year 2013-2014. The Fellows group is split between "At-Large" and "Thematic" Fellows. The Scholars program engages in complex issues pertaining to Law and Jewish Civilization.
We were delighted to announce the launch of “There Is Tikvah NYU,” the official blog of NYU’s Tikvah Center in Fall 2012. The blog is designed to further the Center’s mission—to promote rigorous discussions on normative issues pertaining to Law & Jewish Civilization.
