Mission of The Institute
 
The mission of The Institute for Science and Judaism is to provide forums for creative, respectful dialogue between Science and Judaism and to nurture an interface between them.
 
History of The Institute
 
The Institute for Science and Judaism began in 2004 as an adult education program at Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation in Bethesda, Maryland where the Institute's founder and President, Rabbi George B. Driesen, served as Interim and later Adjunct Rabbi. In subsequent years the Institute functioned informally under the guidance of a Board of Advisors and counted as its members a group of Metropolitan Washington Area Jews and non-Jews who had attended its lectures and workshops.
 
Over the years the number and quality of Institute events increased, and in 2008 it decided to incorporate as a tax-exempt educational and religious corporation. Under the guidance and with the help of its Board of Directors, the quality and number of institute events have increased and it recruited a group of interested rabbis to serve as its Rabbinic Cabinet. Over the years Institute programs have been presented in Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist synagogues in Washington, D.C. and its suburbs and in Columbia, Maryland.
