the tikvah fund

The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization has been established through a generous donation from The Tikvah Fund.

The Tikvah Fund is a private foundation, created by Zalman C. Bernstein, to support Jewish intellectual life in Israel and the Diaspora. By supporting new centers, programs, and courses of study at the leading universities around the world, Tikvah aims to elevate the place of Jewish ideas in the study of the great human questions. Law and politics, philosophy and ethics, literature and theology-in all these areas, the Jewish tradition has much to say and much to offer. Tikvah's hope is that, over the next few decades, the great Jewish learning of the past can be transmitted to a new generation of intellectual leaders, who will think, create, and bring into being another great age of Jewish learning. The Chairman of The Tikvah Fund is Roger Hertog, and Eric Cohen is its Executive Director.
