Early Adversity and Later-Life Illness: New Scientific Research and Tikkun Olam
Dr. David Reiss and Dr. Stephen Suomi have teamed up to participate in a major collaborative
effort sponsored by The National Institute on Aging (USA) and the Economic and Social Research Council (United Kingdom).
This international, interdisciplinary initiative is aimed at uncovering the mechanisms by which adversity during fetal development
and in early childhood produce vulnerability to serious medical illness in later life. Two rabbis will discuss the connection between this work and Tikkun Olam.
The Institute for Science and Judaism seeks to foster dynamic dialogue between Science and Judaism.
We sponsor lectures and workshops featuring distinguished scientists and religious scholars that address
philosophical, ethical, spiritual and practical issues at the intersection of Science and Religion. As the only
Jewish organization in the Washington-Baltimore area with this focus, the Institute's programs have been
held in Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, and Orthodox congregations.
As a not-for-profit organization, The Institute for Science and Judaism depends on individuals like you. Your financial support allows us to continue to offer an active and engaging program of lectures and workshops across the Washington D.C. metro area.
