The Tikvah Fund is a philanthropic foundation and ideas institution committed to supporting the intellectual, religious, and political leaders of the Jewish people and the Jewish State. Tikvah runs and invests in a wide range of initiatives in Israel, the United States, and around the world, including educational programs, publications, and fellowships. We invite you to explore some of these initiatives through the links on this page. Our animating mission and guiding spirit is to advance Jewish excellence and Jewish flourishing in the modern age. Tikvah is politically Zionist, economically free-market oriented, culturally traditional, and theologically open-minded. Yet in all issues and subjects, we welcome vigorous debate and big arguments. Our institutes, programs, and publications all reflect this spirit of bringing forward the serious alternatives for what the Jewish future should look like, and bringing Jewish thinking and leaders into conversation with Western political, moral, and economic thought.

The people who attend Times Square Church have an expectation to hear the pure and uncompromised Word of God and to experience His presence. Those who preach from this pulpit have sought the Lord through prayer and through His Word. There are five services each week. No sermon is ever repeated, and no program is followed, except what the Holy Spirit Himself leads. We invite you to download our free sermons and be challenged and encouraged by God’s Word! Times Square Church is an interdenominational church founded by Reverend David Wilkerson in 1987. Over 8,000 people, representing more than 100 nationalities, gather together to worship and to grow in the love of Jesus Christ, by reaching out to the fatherless, the widows, the oppressed, the destitute, the addicted and the poor.

This is Vox Tablet, the weekly podcast of Tablet Magazine, the online Jewish arts and culture magazine that used to be known as Nextbook.org. Our archive of podcasts is available on our site, tablet2015.wpengine.com. Vox Tablet, hosted by Sara Ivry, varies widely in subject matter and sound -- one week it's a conversation with novelist Michael Chabon, theater critic Alisa Solomon, or anthropologist Ruth Behar. Another week brings the listener to "the etrog man" hocking his wares at a fruit-juice stand in a Jersualem market. Or into the hotel room with poet and rock musician David Berman an hour before he and his band, Silver Jews, head over to their next gig. Recent guests include Alex Ross, Shalom Auslander, Aline K. Crumb, Howard Jacobson, and the late Norman Mailer.

The wisdom of Kabbalah is a scientific tool for studying the spiritual world. To explore our world, we use natural sciences such as physics, chemistry, and biology. But natural sciences study only the physical world we perceive with our five senses. To fully understand the world we live in, we need a research tool that can explore the hidden realm, that which our senses cannot perceive. This tool is the wisdom of Kabbalah. ``Using Kabbalah, we can work with the fundamental forces of reality-reception and bestowal-to our benefit. It doesnï¿½t only teach us the design of creation, but how we can become designers, as omnipotent and as omniscient as the original Designer of reality.``
