This mini-course will explore the close relationship between our sacred Torah (Oral and Written) and the scientist’s understanding of the origins of our world and the rules governing the behavior of our world.


· Biblical Creation and Science: 6 days or 13 billion years

· Two Main Issues:  a) Our Sages interest in scientific matter and b) The compatibility of the teaching of the Sages with presently accepted scientific knowledge

· Illusory Contradictions/Real Contradictions

· The Physics of Free Will: The unpredictable future

No previous scientific knowledge is required. The sources used include: “The Science of G-D” by Prof. Gerald  Schroeder, “The Science in Torah” by Yehudah Levi, “Biblical Creation and Science” by Nathan Aviezer, Rambam, Ramban, Rashi, Vilna Goan, and several contemporary Poskim.
