Welcome to The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization
Based on its Tikvah experience, NYU Law School is exploring the possibility of establishing a broader based Institute of Law and Religion which, in addition to the classical scholarly mission, would constitute a platform for dialog and projects among different religions, principally Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The Tikvah Center at NYU School of Law will be going on Sabbatical during academic year 2014/15 as the Law School contemplates and plans this broader initiative. Stay tuned to our web site for further updates on the progression of these changes. Please note, that we will not be accepting applications for academic year 2014/15.

The Tikvah Center's annual reunion took place on July 23rd-25th, 2013. We were pleased to host it this year in Israel at IDC Herzliya. We created a wonderful event for past, present and future Tikvah Fellows and Scholars to mingle both socially and academically.
The Tikvah Center is pleased to announce its newest group of Fellows and Scholars for Academic year 2013-2014. The Fellows group is split between "At-Large" and "Thematic" Fellows. The Scholars program engages in complex issues pertaining to Law and Jewish Civilization.
We were delighted to announce the launch of “There Is Tikvah NYU,” the official blog of NYU’s Tikvah Center in Fall 2012. The blog is designed to further the Center’s mission—to promote rigorous discussions on normative issues pertaining to Law & Jewish Civilization.
