Praise for Intergalactic Judaism
"Here is a work that combines dazzling erudition in astronomy, theoretical physics
and various other scientific disciplines, together with a fine knowledge of Jewish
mysticism and biblical commentary, and – what is truly rare – an ability to combine
them seamlessly into a view of the world that is both spiritual and humane."
–Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
"[Intergalactic Judaism] is fascinating from a scientific perspective and enlightening
and inspiring from a Torah perspective."
–Rabbi Zev Leff
"This thought-provoking book demonstrates how modern physics
can refresh our perception of Torah and our work in the world."
–Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz
