Roald Hoffmann, recipient of the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1981, is equally comfortable in a land between science, poetry and philosophy. In his talk, he explores how science and religion look at pieces of the world. The religious setting is that of Jewish tradition. The science is mainly the central one, chemistry. This lecture is the kickoff event of a project that seeks to engage science with Jewish tradition to illuminate the theme of Natural and Man-made, with subsequent events on April 2, April 23 and May 7. All events are free and open to the public. The project is supported by Scientists in Synagogues, a program of Sinai and Synapses. See more information here.
