Roald Hoffmann, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1981, is equally comfortable working across disciplines in a land between science, poetry and philosophy.

In this lecture, Professor Hoffmann will explore how science and religion look at pieces of the world: the religious setting is that of Jewish tradition, the science is chemistry.

This is the kickoff event of a project at AKSE that seeks to engage science with Judaism to illuminate the theme of Natural and Man-made. This project is part of Scientists in Synagogues, a grass-roots program to offer Jews opportunities to explore the most interesting and pressing questions surrounding Judaism and science.
