A Cosmological Shabbat at Adat Shalom
Please join us for an unforgettable evening inspired by the 92nd Psalm, "Mah gadlu maasecha yah", "How awesome are thy works, O God". ISJ President Rabbi George Driesen conceived of this multi-media event to deepen our Shabbat experience by embedding a moving presentation of the cosmos into the Kabbalat Shabbat Service. The presentation features celestial images, including some from the Hubble Space Telescope, from the collection of space scientist and Adat Shalom member Steve Brody projected onto the white "sails" that descend from Adat Shalom's ceiling.
 

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.
