15th Miami International Torah & Science Conference


XVth International Conference on Torah and Science


          As they say, times change. And the wise change with them. This includes our renowned Torah and Science conferences. Ever since 1987, we have been bringing high-level scholars and rabbis for 4- or 5-day explorations of the variety of compelling issues to which we must respond deliberately and intelligently. With the recent pandemic and its attendant cultural permutations, it appears that such a larger and extensive program no longer meets the needs and habits of our audience.

          Starting with Torah & Science 15, we will present an annual rather than biennial program. Rather than expansive conferences, we will present three focused events, all about a single topic approached from different perspectives and specializations.


          The next Torah & Science program will be on


Wednesday, April 3, 2024

7:30pm - 9:30pm

Dr. Norman Goldwasser will discuss different types of trauma and the clinical practices that can be effective.

Professor Jeffrey Yarvis will discuss spirituality as a treatment or response to severe trauma.


We draw on rich disciplinary resources from the fields of ethics, medicine, psychiatry, psychology, history, and sociology.

Submissions and queries should be sent to Dr. Nathan Katz:

The Organizing Committee:
    Professor Nathan Katz (Dean, CYS College)
    Rabbi Sholom D. Lipskar (President, CYS College)
    Rabbi Shea Rubinstein
    Ms. Lydia Hasson & Mrs. Ilana Attia

The Shul Child Enrichment Center

The Shul Child Enrichment Center is a place where Jewish children receive an exciting, creative and nurturing experience that will provide them with the foundation to grow spiritually, educationally and socially. We strive to constantly offer the most educational models in one great curriculum.

Your child's experience will be filled with Jewish traditions and customs intertwined with the Montessori philosophy. This method emphasizes the unique individuality and importance of each child. Activities include the use of the five senses, kinetic movement, spatial refinement, small and large motor skill coordination, and concrete knowledge that lead to later abstraction and enhanced development. Also incorporated is a highly creative art program as well as gym, music, yoga and more.

As an educational approach, The Shul Child Enrichment Center woven with the Montessori Method focuses on the needs, talents and gifts of these children. Children who experience the joy of learning are believed to be happy, confident, and fulfilled. We provide small classes with excellent teacher/ student ratios, professional staff of early childhood specialists and modern facilities with a child oriented environment so children can explore, touch, and learn without fear, developing a lifelong love for learning.

We welcome every Jewish child regardless of background of affiliation. Your child will receive a well-rounded enriching education, filled with the richness of Judaism.
