Rabbi Michael Lerner is one of America's most significant progressive intellectuals and political leaders. He is rabbi of the Bay Area congregation Beyt Tikkun and the co-founder and editor of Tikkun magazine: a bimonthly Jewish and interfaith critique of politics, culture, and society.


Tikkun is one of the most respected intellectual/cultural magazines in the Jewish world, but also one of the most controversial because of its stand in favor of the rights of Palestinians, on the one hand, which locates him in the minds of many as the leader and most prominent spokesperson in the United States of Jewish supporters of the Israeli peace movement, and on the other hand, because of his stand critiquing the anti-religious and anti-spiritual biases of the secular Left, insisting that they need to address the spiritual hunger of Americans as equally important to their material needs.
