Teaching Evolution in Yeshiva High Schools.
Wolowelsky, Joel B.
Ten Da'at, v10 n1 p33-39 Spr 1997
Addresses the apparent conflicts between the ideas of evolutionary biology and the Jewish faith, especially those related to literal interpretations of the Old Testament. Believes that lurking behind the would-be debate between the Torah and evolution is either a shallow understanding of the Torah, or an unsophisticated appreciation of science, or both. (WRM)
