When Science Meets Religion:
Intelligent Perspectives on Our World


An evening discussion
with Dr. Noah Finkelstein &
Rabbi Jamie Korngold


Why would it be that so many great scientists are Jews? Despite recent efforts to polarize our society into "religious" or "scientific" camps, these forms of understanding the world- science and religion- may be viewed as strong complements of one another.

In fact, they offer many overlapping views of the way the world is and how it works. We examine what it means to engage in scientific or religious inquiry, explore the challenges of a world that truly excludes science or religion, and ground the broader questions with with specific examples such as: the creation story, miracles, visions of nature, or topics of your own selection.

Dr. Noah Finkelstein is a Professor of Physics Education Research in the Department of Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder and a frequent participant on Adventure Rabbi trips. Noah currently serves as the President of the Adventure Rabbi Leadership Council. Noah is known for welcoming everyone's viewpoint, so please come prepared to share your unique ideas.

This program will be facilitated by Dr. Finkelstein with Rabbi Korngold

Nosh and drinks will be provided.

How to
do Shabbat

February 11 , 2009

5:45 - 6:45 p.m.


Join Rabbi Korngold for 60 minutes of accessible, enjoyable learning. Great for those who would like a more intensive learning experience than rest breaks on the trail provide.

In this one hour class we will explore the basics and not so basics about how to "do" Shabbat including:

  • What goes on a Sabbath table and why?
  • What prayers do we say over candles, wine and challah?
  • Why do some people tear the challah?
  • Can I be a good Jew and not spend Shabbat in Temple?
