2022 YCQ Truman Scholars

Friday February 11th 2022

The Truman Scholars Program is an educational initiative of the Tikvah Fund designed for exceptional 7th and 8th grade students in Orthodox Jewish middle schools that explores the large theme of America and Israel as two exceptional and covenantal nations. Truman Scholars study online with Tikvah master educators, and explore the Hebraic influence on the American experiment, through the careful study of great speeches, stories, court decisions, and excerpted works of political philosophy. Truman Scholars also explore the founding of modern Israel, traced from the biblical and rabbinic sources that sustained Zionist longing in exile, to the modern statesmen, poets, soldiers, and religious leaders who gave birth — and voice — to modern Israel.
