Tradition: A Journal of Orthodox Jewish Thought is a quarterly Orthodox Jewish academic journal published by the Rabbinical Council of America in association with Yeshiva University in New York City. It contains essays about the history, philosophy, and practice of Orthodox Judaism.


Tradition was established in 1958 by Rabbi Norman Lamm (1958–1962). Its subsequent editors-in-chief were Rabbi Walter Wurzburger (1962–1988), Rabbi Emanuel Feldman (1988–2001), and Rabbi Michael Shmidman (2001–2004). It is currently edited by Rabbi Shalom Carmy (Yeshiva University). In its five decades in print, Tradition has published on a wide range of topics including theology, history, biography, sociology, politics, and ethics, and has featured seminal articles by the Rav, the late Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik in the 1960s and 1970s.
