Rabbis of the (Scientific) Revolution: Jews and Early Modern Science
Time & Location
Dec 05, 2021, 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM
About the Event
Join us to explore the ways in which early modern Jews responded to the scientific and cultural innovations of their time. How aware were European Jews of these discoveries and developments? How did they interpret their religious, social, and cultural significance? How did they translate the new discoveries and transformative innovations into their own Jewish idiom?
Presented by Dr. Iris Idelson-Shein Norbert Blechner and Friends Career Development Chair in East-European Jewish Culture, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
Sponsor: The Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies, Americans for Ben-Gurion University
