dc.description.abstract "Tikkun began in 1986 in part to address this hunger for love and meaning, and in part as a progressive Jewish alternative to Commentary magazine, pushing back against neoconservatism in the Jewish world and U.S. politics, with strong coverage and analysis of issues related to Israel/Palestine, the politics of the U.S. social theory, philosophy, and cultural critique, as well as including fiction, poetry and reviews of books and film. It became world-famous as the first serious Jewish intellectual and cultural magazine to systematically critique the Israeli Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and to challenge the materialism and spiritual deadness that a new generation of Jews were experiencing in many of the formal institutions of the Jewish world. Yet Tikkun has done all this not to delegitimate the existence of the State of Israel or to weaken Judaism, but rather to foster a spiritual and ethical renewal both in Israel and among world Jewry. In so doing, we helped provide the intellectual foundation for the emergence of a rich array of social justice-oriented organizations in the Jewish world and of organizations critical of Israeli policy toward Palestinians yet supportive of Israel’s right to exist."
