TIKVAH OVERSEAS STUDENT INSTITUTE

November 2019–June 2020 / חשון–סיון תש"פ

START YOUR APPLICATION

Now in its tenth year, the Tikvah Overseas Students Institute focuses on the political and moral dilemmas confronting Jews in Israel and around the globe. What does it mean to be a Jewish citizen or leader in the contemporary world? What values and policies are necessary for Israel and the Jewish people to thrive in the twenty-first century? How can Judaism impact the future of Western civilization? These big questions animate our discussions as we explore the challenges facing modern Jewry.

In the 2019–2020 academic year, TOS features two types of programs, each addressing a unique set of public policy dilemmas through different formats. The programs provide a unique opportunity for dialogue and camaraderie with other select students looking to enhance their experience in Israel. By exposing our participants to great texts and thinkers, the institute aims to inspire the next generation of thinkers who can lead the Jewish community in confronting the great questions of our times.
