CTNS Public Forum with Hava Tirosh-Samuelson, "Judaism and the Science-and-Religion Dialogue: A Personal Journey "
Dinner Board Room, Graduate Theological Union
How did a secular, Zionist woman born in a kibbutz in Israel become involved in the field of science and religion? While telling a unique personal story, Dr. Tirosh-Samuelson will reflect on the place of science in Jewish history, the diverse perceptions of science in modern Judaism, and the limited interest of Jews in the science and religion and dialogue. Dr. Tirosh-Samuelson will argue that engaging the field of science and religion could enrich contemporary Jewish philosophy and theology, and, conversely, that Judaism could make a distinctive contribution to the field of science and religion.
