STEM Dinner with Ian Jacobi, Technion Professor

March 28, 2019, 6:30 pm
Congregation Beth El
8215 Old Georgetown Rd
Bethesda, MD

Please join the STEM Professionals Affinity Group as we welcome Dr. Ian Jacobi, assistant professor of aerospace engineering at Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa. Jacobi will tell the curious story of an artist from Arizona who creates beautiful photographs using whisky stains, the mechanics behind his whisky artistry, and how those mechanics make an apperance in a major, centuries-long halachic controversy. Jacobi will also talk about life at the Technion and engineering research in Israel.

Anyone interested in Science, Scotch, Israel or Technion is welcome to attend. Scotch tasting will be available for those over 21 years old, but all ages are welcome to attend the event.

Dinner is $5 per person. RSVP by Monday, March 25. This program is sponsored by the Beth El STEM Professional Affinity Group and is made possible by a grant from the Sinai and Synapses Project of Scientists in Synagogues, a grass-roots program to offer Jews opportunities to explore the most interesting and pressing questions surrounding Judaism and science.
