(September 10, 2020, JNS Wire) Calling all lovers of big questions and great ideas: Study with the Tikvah Fund at Tikvah Online Academy this fall! Tikvah Online Academy offers unparalleled opportunities for 7th-12th graders and Israel gap-year students to delve deep into great texts and ideas of Jewish, Zionist, and Western civilization.
Discover topics you won’t find anywhere else, like the relationship and tensions between Jewish and Greek philosophy, the wonders of Yiddish literature, the speeches that shaped the State of Israel, the theology of Abraham Lincoln, how Jews should think about modern technology, Israeli military strategy, and much more. Learn from our incomparable faculty of award-winning novelists, preeminent college professors, and leading rabbis. Explore ideas with intellectually curious young Jews from across the world.
Classes meet once a week from mid-October through November live over Zoom, and all seminars are scheduled so they will not interfere with the school day. As a very strange school year begins, Tikvah Online Academy aims to ensure that exceptional Jewish students continue to receive an high-quality education that equips them as commited Jews, passionate Zionists, and engaged citizens.
