    Modern Perspectives on Science & Judaism: Reconciling a Jewish Heritage with a Scientific Career

    The Methodology of Miracles: Examining Once-in-History Events and our Everyday Lives Through the Lens of Science and Torah
    The splitting of the Sea, the miracle of Chanukah, and our normal everyday life â€" what do these three things have in common? More than you might think.

    Beakers & Black Hats: A Scientist’s Return

He discusses (a) what drew him to a more connected/observant life, (b) the successful and painless transition to it, and (c) life as an orthodox Jew in a professional setting.
