With the creation of a COVID-19 Vaccine, we are hopefully beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Through the power of science, humanity has once again triumphed over adversity. But is there a cost to that progress? Using a passage from Dan Brown's Angels and Demons, we will explore whether there is a Jewish of value of scientific progress and, if so, the opportunities and challenges that such advancements herald. Among others, we will focus on works from Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, Hassidic Rabbi Tzadok of Lublin, and Chief Rabbi Avraham Isaac Kook.
