Israel putting money on a relationship between science and Jewish law

| |

The Science and Technology Ministry is this year investing NIS 1.2 million in research and education on the relationship between science and halakha (Jewish religious law). Half the sum will be allocated to promoting enrichment courses on the subject, and the rest will be used to fund applied research on scientific and technological solutions to problems posed by halakha.

The ministry is currently making decisions as to recipients of grants from the NIS 600,000 set aside annually to fund research; this year, the latter will related to issues in the fields of genetics, economics and the environment, and how they touch on the halakhic lifestyle. Last year the ministry funded research related to halakha and the field of medicine.
