Judaism, Science & Medicine Group
The Judaism, Science and Medicine Group (JSMG) is an international organization of natural and social scientists, philosophers, historians, physicians, rabbis, theologians and educators who act to promote and facilitate a close relationship between Jewish religion, cultures and values, and the sciences, for the mutual benefit of both. The group creates forums for dialogue between scientists, healthcare professionals and scholars of Judaism, fosters interdisciplinary, collaborative research projects and develops educational materials about the interrelation of Judaism and the sciences.
To become a member of the group, please contact the Center for Jewish Studies.
