Description

How do we understand the overrepresentation of Jews in the sciences? Several theories are offered, followed by an overview of the legendary contributions of American Jews to medicine, physics, astronomy, psychology, atomic research and economics. Does it matter if the Jews in question do not fully embrace their Jewish identity? If so, why does it still matter that they are Jews? A far reaching discussion of Jews and intelligence, and what it means. Sponsored by Becky and Avi Katz l'iuly nishmat Yonah ben Harav Aryeh Leib z"l.
