The Significance of the Tikkun Archive

Tikkun has played a remarkable role in American politics in the years since it was formed as “the liberal alternative to Commentary and the neo-conservative voices in the Jewish world.” Tikkun has evolved into an interfaith voice of “spiritual progressives” around the world, and has published some of the most interesting Muslim thinkers (including Tariq Ramadan, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, Imam Zaid Shakir, Congressman Keith Ellison, and Kabir Helminski), Christian thinkers (including Rev. Brian McLaren, Sister Joan Chittister, Father Daniel Berrigan, John Dominic Crossan, William Sloane Coffin, Tony Campolo, Diana Eck, Father Richard Rohr, Jack Miles, Ched Meyers, Matthew Fox, Walter Brueggemann, Father Hans Kung, Gary Dorrien, and Rosemary Radford Ruether) and Buddhist thinkers (including David Loy, Bernie Glasman, Sharon Salzberg, Robert Thurman). As a preeminent Jewish intellectual magazine we have published writers who would never publish in Commentary or the array of other Jewish mainstream or coffee table magazines—writers that have included Rachel Adler, Woody Allen, Shulamit Aloni, Uri Avnery, Zygmunt Bauman, Jeremy Ben Ami, Noam Chomsky, Arnold Eisen, Sidra Dekoven Ezrahi, Rabbi Arthur Green, Kim Chernin, Nan Gefen, Rabbi Or Rose, Rabbi Arik Ascherman, David Grossman, Susannah Heschel, Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, George Lakoff, Jessica Montell, Judith Plaskow, Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Chaim Potok, Amos Oz, A.B. Yehoshua, Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi, Marge Piercy, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Joseph Skibell, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, and more). But Tikkun’s importance has been that it has fostered the growth of two major movements:

  1. The movement of American Jews and allies of Jews who have come to understand, largely through the work of Tikkun and the many thousands of people influenced by Tikkun, that the best way to support the State of Israel is to help it end the Occupation of the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza, and to help it overcome the mistaken notion that its security rests on its ability to scare its neighbors rather than to make common cause with them. Tikkun Editor Rabbi Michael Lerner’s ideas are influential among younger Jews even among many who don’t know his name, even though the media has given him along with others on the Left and especially the religious Left, only scant and often dismissive attention. His theology book Jewish Renewal was a national best-seller in 1994 when it was published by Putnam, and its ideas have seeped into the discourse in much of the Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative and Jewish Renewal movements.
  2. The movement of religious and spiritual progressives, brought together through the Network of Spiritual Progressives and through a series of national and regional conferences sponsored by Tikkun. Many of the ideas and approaches that you now will find in the liberal and progressive circles in Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish circles were first explored in Tikkun or at the national conferences Tikkun created. Those ideas have also yielded many national campaigns, most recently the campaign for a Global Marshall Plan and for an ESRA — Environmental and Social Responsibility Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

All this awaits you in the Tikkun archive, and one great way to explore it is to help us improve it!
