Hello Ricochet! The Tikvah Podcast is the latest show to join the Ricochet Audio Network. (If you haven’t listened yet, here it is!) We couldn’t be more excited about it. We want you to be excited as well, so let’s introduce ourselves…
The Tikvah Fund is a think tank, educational institution, and philanthropic foundation committed to supporting the intellectual, religious, and political leaders of the Jewish people and the Jewish state. We do our work through a wide range of venues, from great books-oriented summer programs, to publications like Mosaic and the Jewish Review of Books, to online courses and podcasts. Intellectually and politically, we’re broadly center-right, admiring and learning from the likes of Irving Kristol, Leo Strauss, Leon Kass, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, and Vladimir Jabotinsky.
We think politics is important—both in Israel and in America. But Tikvah isn’t fundamentally in the business of commenting on the news cycle. And neither is the Tikvah Podcast. Our podcast is focused on asking big questions about great Jewish and Zionists texts and ideas. We hope that by taking a step back, we can help our listeners think a little more deeply about the most significant issues facing the Jewish people, our Christian friends, the State of Israel, and the United States of America.
