Science in the Synagogue: “Mazel/Shlemazel: Examining the Influence of the Heavenly Spheres on Human Lives”

Sunday, January 23, 2022 21 Shevat 5782

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Contemporary conceptions of time are based on very ancient – in some cases, archaic – understandings of the movement of the heavenly spheres and their inter-relationships.  What do we do when modern scientific findings bring some of these “truths” into question?  And how do we deal with the ancients' misunderstandings of cosmology that have come to be embedded in the Jewish calendar and Jewish psyche?

Join us on Sunday, Jan 23 at 7 p.m. for our next installation of Science in the Synagogue, entitled Mazel/Shlemazel: Examining the Influence of the Heavenly Spheres on Human Lives” in which panelists Jonathan Levine (Assoc. Prof. Physics, Colgate) and Jason Mokhtarian (Assoc. Prof. Near Eastern Studies, Cornell) will bring their respective disciplinary lenses to bear on cosmology, time and fate.
