Medicine and science have played a special role in the modern Jewish experience, but few know about ancient rabbinic interest in nature or Jewish science in the Middle Ages and during the scientific revolution. WHYY’S Maiken Scott moderates a panel of Katz Center scholars for a wide-ranging discussion of how Jews have interpreted – and have been defined by – the natural world.
