Bridging the Gap: an academic's struggle to reconcile Jewish heritage with a secular education
Join us for a journey of self discovery with Dr. Abrams, as he bridges the gap between two seemingly conflicting worlds, dealing with questions such as: Is man's origin from an ape or from Adam? How old is our world?
Shabbat Morning, January 19th

Modern Perspectives on Science & Judaism: From Creation to the "G-d Particle"
