For many, Torah and science may seem at odds. This outlook has been a part of our world for centuries, but is it actually a Jewish outlook? Is it indeed possible to reconcile Torah and science or are they intractable antagonists? In this session we will look at ancient, traditional, authentic Jewish sources in an effort to answer those questions and to demonstrate illuminating correlations with modern outlooks in anthropology, physics (quantum and astro) and linguistics. Whereas Torah may answer the "why", science tries to answer the “how”. Can both avenues of understanding creation dovetail with each other? Let’s see whether we can shatter any false paradigms!
