Sacred Space Episode 1: Science and Religion

Sacred Space Episode 1: Science and Religion

Sacred Space is a new multi-episode series developed by the Academy for Jewish Religion (AJR) that will bring innovative thinkers at the forefront of meaningful conversations about religion and spirituality in everyday life. Rabbi Geoff Mitelman is a consultant for this project on science and religion at the Academy for Jewish Religion, sponsored by the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion (DoSER).

The Academy for Jewish Religion is the first ever Jewish seminary to be chosen by the American Association for the Advancement of Science as part of their Science for Seminaries Project. Science for Seminaries “provides participating institutions with resources to integrate science into their coursework and campus-wide events,” and is run by DoSER in partnership with the Association of Theological Schools.

The host of Sacred Space, Cantor Elizabeth Sternlieb, took some time to speak with Rabbi Mitelman and Dr. Jennifer Wiseman of the AAAS DoSER program. The full video can be found here.
