Divine and Human Purpose in Science and Judaism
Please join Rabbi Dr. Leonard Levin, the author of The Case for God: Answering the Atheist (ajrsem.academia.edu/LennyLevin), in confronting the profound questions that we who affirm both contemporary science and Judaism must consider: Does the universe attest to a purposeful God? If it does, do humans have a special role in God's scheme? Science professes to be neutral on these issues, but revolutionary discoveries in physics and astronomy have revealed that our universe and life itself depend upon an extraordinarily improbable convergence of precise physical constants. Do these discoveries attest to God's creation? Rabbi Levin will draw upon biblical texts; ideas of our sages; and the writings of theologians, philosophers, and scientists from ancient to modern times to address these questions.
 

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.
