Publication of Genesis and Genes

July 2, 2012


I am pleased to announce that my book, Genesis and Genes, has been accepted for publication by Feldheim Publishers. It will be published later this year, אי”ה. [Feldheim operates a number of autonomous divisions. The division that will publish the book is not associated with the part of the company that is in financial trouble.]

Genesis and Genes is a meticulously researched analysis of the relationship between the Torah and science, especially cosmology and biological evolution. It draws on hundreds of sources and contains more than 500 endnotes. The book carries a הסכמה from the Rosh Yeshiva of Ner Israel, Rabbi Aharon Feldman שליט”א, and the Foreword is written by Rabbi Dr. Dovid Gottlieb שליט”א of Ohr Somayach, Jerusalem. Genesis and Genes is probably the most comprehensive book of its type available to the Jewish community. Despite its depth and rigour, however, Genesis and Genes is accessible, and does not require any background in science or Torah.

Genesis and Genes grew from my conviction that such a work is urgently needed, both in the South African Jewish community and abroad. I sincerely hope that you will assist me in making Genesis and Genes available to those who will benefit from it.
