Science and Transformation in Jewish Culture: April 22–23, 2018


24th Annual Gruss Colloquium in Judaic Studies

During this two-day colloquium, scholars from around the world joined our fellows to explore the ways that science and Judaism have long been mutual catalysts of change, exploration, and self-reflection. 


  • In a recent blog post, the fellows of the Colloquium Planning Committee explain how the event enabled us to see the diversity of ways in which Jews interacted with the natural world. 
  • In another post, Colloquium panelist Annette Yoshiko Reed reviews the "richly eclectic discussion" that resulted.
  • Matt Goldish, a past fellow, writes about a related topic on science and transformation in Jewish culture in a different recent post on the Katz Center blog
