Our Mission and Methods

Our Mission

Sinai and Synapses offers people a worldview that is both scientifically grounded and spiritually uplifting. It provides tools and language for learning and living to those who see science as their ally as they pursue personal growth and the repair of our world.

We equip scientists, clergy and dedicated laypeople with knowledge and skills to become role models and ambassadors for grappling with the biggest and most important questions we face. We believe that in order to enhance ourselves and our world, we need both religion and science as sources of wisdom, as the spark for new questions, and as inspiration and motivation.

Through classes, seminars, lectures, videos, podcasts and writings, it helps create a vision of religion that embraces critical thinking and scientific inquiry, and at the same time, gives meaning to people’s lives and helps them make a positive impact on society.

It is incubated at Clal – The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, which links Jewish wisdom with innovative scholarship to deepen civic and spiritual participation in American life.

Our Methods

Sinai and Synapses explores big questions from both religious and scientific perspectives, and achieves its mission through several programs, activities, and learning opportunities.
