This survey is designed to collect initial informal data surrounding Judaism and science. What do Jews think about science? What scientific topics interest them most? What are some of the potential challenges surrounding Judaism and science?
As you might know, within the next 18 months, you and your community will be involved in programming about Judaism and science through Sinai and Synapses' project Scientists in Synagogues, a grass-roots program to offer Jews opportunities to explore the most interesting and pressing questions surrounding Judaism and science. This pre-program survey is designed to discover (in aggregate) some initial impressions about science and Judaism, and then, by December 2023 (or earlier, depending on when your programming culminates), we will send out a post-program survey to compare the results.
It should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
These questions are based on the Religious Understanding of Science Study, led by Professor Elaine Howard Ecklund at Rice University, and are part of the Perceptions Project, an initiative of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Program of Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion, and used with permission.
