An Examination of Torah and Science through the lens of Conflict

May 1, 2024

This year marked the 30th annual Torah and Science Conference hosted at JCT

Each year, the Jerusalem College of Technology, together with Bar Ilan University convene to explore the intricate interplay between Torah and science. Within this dynamic continuum, participants engage in fascinating dialogue, delving into pressing issues and pioneering innovations that intersect both realms. This year’s conference centered its lectures and discussions on multifaceted dimensions of Iron Swords conflict. Topics ranged from the forensic identification of victims to the nuanced treatment of post-traumatic stress during wartime. Additionally, discourse extended to groundbreaking areas such as the ethical utilization of reproductive materials from war casualties and the nuanced intersection between international law and Torah principles.

Among this year’s excellent line-up of speakers included:

Head of JCT’s Yeshiva – Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon 

Chairman of the conference – Professor Noach Dana Picard 

Nobel Prize Winner – Professor Aumann

President of JCT – Professor Chaim Sukenik
