The Baal Shem Tov taught that there is Torah in everything we observe in the world. Rocket Science – one of the great achievements of the 20th century – is full of inspiring lessons that can guide us through our lives. In this class, we will examine two basic principles of rocket science and learn what their spiritual parallels are, based on the insights of the Chasidic masters.
