How to Be Jewish in Space

July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Originally recorded on Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 7:00 pm EST with Rabbi Dr. Eli Yoggev.



How does one observe the Sabbath if, while in orbit, the sun rises and sets every ninety minutes? Is astronaut food kosher? Is it safe to eat matzah in zero-gravity? How DO you observe Jewish traditions in space? Join JMM and Rabbi Eli Yoggev for a look at the big and small questions of being Jewish in space!


This live stream Zoom event is presented in the lead up to this fall’s special exhibit, Jews in Space: Members of the Tribe in Orbit. This program is part of our month-long celebration in honor of the first moon landing!
