Episode 5. Rabbi Geoffrey Mitelman. Must Science be the Adversary of Religion?


We're very excited about this episode.  After all, it's not every day that a one-time Jeopardy! contestant decides to come on the show.  In a freewheeling conversation we focus on the uneasy relationship between Science and Religion.  Are these disciplines forever destined to be enemies? 

Rabbi Geoffrey Mitelman is the Founding Director of Sinai and Synapses, an organization that bridges the scientific and religious worlds, and is being incubated at Clal – The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership.

His work has been supported by the John Templeton FoundationEmanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies, and the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation, and his writings about the intersection of religion and science have appeared on the homepages of several sites, including The Huffington PostNautilusScience and Religion TodayJewish Telegraphic Agency, and My Jewish Learning. He has been an adjunct professor at both the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and the Academy for Jewish Religion, and is a sought-out teacher, presenter, and scholar-in-residence throughout the country.
