✔ Our rich menu of courses includes seminars on Jewish ideas and Western civilization, the history and heroes of Israel, the future of American democracy, the fight against anti-Semitism, and the principles of a free economy and free society.

✔ Our weekly online classes can be taken from anywhere in the world, and students are welcome to enroll in one or more courses throughout summer 2020.

✔ TOA educators are leading professors, policy experts, rabbis, and writers eager to teach intellectually curious students who want to join Tikvah’s community of ideas.

✔ All classes meet once per week for four consecutive weeks. Classes will be running throughout the summer from mid-June to mid-July (Session #1) and from mid-July to early August (Session #2).
