The Tikvah Fund and the University of Dallas have teamed up on a master’s degree in humanities with a concentration in Jewish classical education. The program, of Tikvah’s Lobel Center for Jewish Classical Education, is designed for “teachers, educational leaders and anyone interested in Jewish classical education.”

“Our aim is to form educated Jews with a true mastery of the classical arts of grammar, logic and rhetoric, and a deep understanding of Jewish, Western and American culture,” the Lobel Center states on its website.

Jewish classical education inspires young Jews of any background to understand foundational Jewish ideas, stories and texts, notes the center. It also helps young Jews understand how Jewish ideas shaped America and the West.

“We want to draw Jewish students and Jewish families into this renaissance of learning,” it states.

The master’s degree program will launch this fall with both full-time and part-time students.
