ABOUT US

The Jewish Center for Science is dedicated to increasing the personal connection of every Jew to Hashem. 

Utilizing current scientific knowledge, we reveal the astounding wisdom and kindness hidden in the world we encounter daily. 

Under the guidance and bracha of Gedolei Yisrael, our fun and fascinating science education resources will encourage you to explore the many levels of creation and appreciate the depths of Hashem's flawless design. 

Our approach follows the Rambam, who explains that contemplation on the wonders of creation brings a person to love and awe of Hashem, and fulfills a mitzvah d'Oraisa. By offering a framework for studying the world as a product of Hashem, we aim to strengthen this kind of meaningful contemplation and at the same time inoculate against heretical theories prevalent in contemporary science and society.
