This 2-hour lecture and study session, entitled “Cosmology Today: Spiritual Insights, Ethical Imperatives – ‘Ta Chazei!'”, brings together multiple strands of modern astrophysical discovery from cosmology to exoplanets. It uses them to find new meanings in Scriptural and Kabbalistic language, and conversely uses religious texts to probe what might be going on in the physical universe that apparently puts humanity into its extraordinary situation.
Like all posted events on this page, it is open to the public. (See the Hebrew College website for details.) It is co-sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), under whose auspices Howard Smith also recently presented at the Hebrew Union College Rabbinical School.
