(SCI) Israel Funds Courses On Ties Between Jewish Law & Science

"Program, funded by the Science and Technology Ministry, is drawing fire from academic quarters for not being science based.

The Science and Technology Ministry is continuing to fund enrichment courses for the general public on the relationship between science and Jewish law (halakha ), according to a tender published last week inviting groups to apply for grants. The tender stipulates that bodies applying for the funding must be those dealing with 'halakhic-scientific research' and in finding 'technological-halakhic solutions.'

The ministry is to grant NIS 600,000 in funding to this year's programs, less than last year's NIS 1 million handed out."
