We are pleased to announce that Shir Hadash has been selected to receive a grant in order to promote the study of Science and Religion.

This project is part of an international program entitled “Scientists in Synagogues,” a grass-roots initiative run by Sinai and Synapses in consultation with the American Association for the Advancement of Science Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion, and funded by the John Templeton Foundation, along with other individual donors.

In particular, we would like to congratulate – and thank – Sharon Brown and Dr. Rachel Pear for leading this initiative, which will include a number of Science and Religion based programs throughout the coming year.

To help us better understand the nature of our community on this subject, the granting organization has invited all Shir Hadash members and participants to complete a survey of their views. We encourage you to participate at your earliest convenience: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8HQC2YR
