The heart of every great institution, organization or movement is the ideas it has to put on the table. If you don’t have something that is genuinely new and important to say, it’s rarely worth the effort. The Herzl Institute is one of the few institutions in the Jewish world that puts the development of new ideas at the center of its operations. We support the research, publication and dissemination of original, ground-breaking books and essays in idea-shaping disciplines that ultimately define the world we live in, as Jews and as human beings, including: Philosophy, Political Theory, History, Bible, Talmud, Jewish Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, and Education.
