Brodetsky lectures

A new series of Brodetsky Memorial Lectures is to be inaugurated focusing on science and Jewish history and culture. Selig Brodetsky held the chair of applied mathematics from 1924-48, and following his death in 1954, a lecture series was instituted to reflect his broad scientific and Jewish interests. Discontinued in 1989, the lectures are now being revived by the centre for Jewish studies, the schools of mathematics and philosophy and CentreCATH.

In the first event of the new series, Professor Menachem Fisch of the University of Tel Aviv will lecture on Reading God's two books: science and the Talmud's debate on religion. The lecture takes place at 5.30pm on Thursday 30 May in the Yorkshire Bank Lecture Theatre. Admission is free, but by ticket only. For tickets, contact Josine Opmeer on ext 31629 or email
