It wasn’t that long ago that I mentioned new courses being offered under the auspices of the Tikvah Fund. I also mentioned that I’d applied for admission to one of those courses.

I’m delighted to share that I have been admitted to the course I applied for: “Zionist Thought and Statesmanship,” taught by Professor Allan Arkush. (I was also tempted by Dara Horn’s “When Bad Things Happen to Good People: Divine Justice and Human Creativity in Jewish Literature,” but that course meets during the day, and I couldn’t swing that with my work schedule.)

If you’re curious, the syllabus for Professor Arkush’s course is online. I can’t wait to get started!

  1. Well, Mazel Tov!

    I hope what you learn exceeds your expectations. And further, that you prove true the Talmudic assertion that a teacher learns most from his or her students.

    Thank you both so much! I’ll admit that I’m a tad nervous about the requirement to write a graduate-level seminar paper. It has been many years since I’ve written such a paper (and I wasn’t working a full-time job outside of “school”). But we’ll hope for the best. I’m so excited about this opportunity to study!
