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 One — Bereshit and the Big Bang. Is God a Particle Physicist?

In the beginning, there was Heaven and the Earth — and the Higgs Boson. Does Torah contemplate the Big Bang? Does the Eternal One work through physics?

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.
