Jews and the Brain: Friday night dinner with member and neuroscientist, Daniel Glaser, in conversation with Rabbi Jeremy

March 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

These days, neuroscience seems to think it can explain everything. Once upon a time religion did also. New imaging techniques produce more and more impressive pictures of the brain while religious investigators seek the ultimate nature of human existence without MRIs or CTs.

Reflections on British-Jewish Poetry since 1945

April 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
