The Search for Extraterrestrial Life: Latest Developments and the Implications for Jewish Theology
Recent discoveries by NASA of planets orbiting distant suns and possible water under the surface of moons of Jupiter and Saturn create the intriguing possibility that conditions for life are not unique to Earth. Dr. Jennifer Wiseman, Sr. Project Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope, will offer an update on these discoveries, and Rabbi Fred Scherlinder Dobb will talk about the implications of these findings for Jewish Theology.
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.
