I. Fellowship Announcement

The Herzl Institute in Jerusalem, in collaboration with the John Templeton Foundation, invites proposals for a funding initiative in “Jewish Philosophical Theology.” Our aim is to encourage research from both new and established scholars working on philosophical projects in the area of Jewish theology. We anticipate applications from philosophers interested in Jewish theology, but welcome applicants from other areas including Hebrew Bible and rabbinics, Jewish Studies and allied disciplines.

II. Fellowship Description

Project Directors:
Yoram Hazony, The Herzl Institute
Joshua Weinstein, The Herzl Institute

This $560,000 funding initiative is intended to support work in Jewish philosophical theology. Proposals can request between $40,000 and $100,000 for projects not to exceed two years in duration. We intend to make 7-10 awards.
