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.
 

How Science Can Expand
Our Spiritual Horizons
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.
