Date: Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 6:30pm - 8:00pm

In Partnership with the 92y’s 7 Days of Genius Festival

Is relativity Jewish? Join us for an exciting exploration of the intersection of science and religion through the lens of one of the world’s greatest minds: Albert Einstein. Professor Steven Gimbel, author of Einstein’s Jewish Science, joins Rabbi Geoff Mitelman, founder of Sinai and Synapses, discuss how Judaism influenced Einstein’s unique brand of genius and where science and religion can meet. This event is co-presented as a partnership among Central Synagogue, 92y’s 7 Days of Genius Festival, and Sinai and Synapses’ new program Scientists in Synagogues.
