The Genesis Project: Science Meets Jewish Thought

An exciting new series. Leading Canadian scientists and Jewish thinkers will join us in exploring a modern interpretation of the Seven Days of Creation. No science background required — just bring your curiosity!

Four programs in 5777 (2016-2017), three more in 5778 (2017-8).

Day Three — A-Life: Worth Living?

Life begins on the third day of Bereshit. Soon it will be possible to create artificial life, “A-Life”: designer cells and tissues, and, eventually, entire organisms. What ethical challenges does this pose?

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.
