Cosmologist David Hogg and Rabbi Dan will discuss the Big Bang, creation and the search for truth at the next Rebbe’s Table Klezmer brunch series on Sunday, January 24 at 10 am at City Winery (155 Varick Street).
"While the idea of creation is central to Jewish thought, the Big Bang theory provides the framework for our understanding of the cosmos,” said Rabbi Dan. "Together with cosmologist David Hogg, we'll explore how the search for truth intersects with faith, and whether the scientific endeavor comes into conflict with the religious framework."
David W. Hogg has been on the faculty of the New York University Department of Physics since 2001. His interests are in observational cosmology, galaxies, and the making of fundamental measurements with enormous astrophysical data sets. He is a member of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Collaboration and works with data from the GALEX, Hubble, and Spitzer Space Telescopes.
