Torah and Science Unconflicting,
Dr. Tendler Tells Akiva Loyalists

Torah and science have
an accord in Jewish tradi-
tion and teachings, a noted
scientist told the 500 sup-
- porters of Akiva Hebrew
Day School at the school's
19th anniversary dinner at
Shaarey Zedek, Sunday.
Rabbi Moses _Tendler,
noted cancer researcher and
biologist, professor of bi-
ology and Talmud at
Yeshiva University, gave a
fascinating discourse, re-
plete with Talmudic refer-
ences, in which he traced
the traditional Jewish atti-
tudes on science as an ac-
cepted and emphasized
element in learning.
He declared that Torah
and science coordinate and
he drew upon a score of
examples from Jewish lore
to emphasize it.
Torah, he declared, is
for humanity, not for
Jews alone, except that
Jews accept the greater
responsibility for it.
