Torah in Orbit: Jewish Journeys in Space (2019)
Astronaut Jeff Hoffman and Executive Producer Rachel Raz in Hollywood Florida at the Israeli-American Council Summit (IAC)
What does it mean to be a Jew in the “Space Age”? How do we stay connected to Judaism when we’re “off-world”? Astronaut Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman has thought about these questions and more. As the first Jewish-American man in space he took a Torah made for travelers with him onto the Columbia space shuttle. Educator Rachel Raz and IAC Eitanim student Tal Keshet conversed with Dr. Hoffman and discussed how he adapted Jewish rituals for leaving Earth, how Jews have traditionally dealt with religion on the road, and where the Jewish journey may take us next.
