Science and Halacha: Science and Halacha
This evening (Wednesday) is the first of our two classes on conflict between modern science and halachah (Jewish law).
Source materials are available through the link. In class we will translate and explain these sources, surveying the opinions of the leading rabbanim through the ages.
In addition to being one of Rabbi Brovender's first students, Rabbi Dovid Fink is an outstanding expertﾠand teacher of Halacha. Rabbi Fink received his Rabbinic ordination from ITRI and the Mir and was awarded his Ph.D in Semitic Languages and Linguistics from Yale University. Rav Fink has taught thousands of students from all over the world for over 35 years.
