Torah and Science – The Controversy Remains

21 Tishri 5773 – October 7, 2012
It seems that two very prominent rabbinic figures have come on board with Rabbi Slifkin’s views with respect to reconciling science and the Torah.

5 Elul 5772 – August 23, 2012
The truth is that Orthodox Jews are all lumped together as having the same attitudes in life.

They are both seen as Orthodox and their worldviews are more or less seen to be the same: decidedly anti-modern. But this viewpoint doesn't reflect the reality.
