A WORD FROM THE EDITOR.
Topics of discussion of the prestigious authors in volume 25 of B'Or HaTorah range from astronomy and physics (using data from the Hadron Collider in Geneva) to the new fields of gene editing and assisted reproduction with two or three mothers, to artificial hearts, internet addiction, and meditation versus prayer, plus many other intriguing issues--all of them revealing a deep relationship with Torah.
BHT's mission is to be an international forum for Jews to express their understanding of how the Torah permeates our everyday life, casting light even on its most remote corners. We desire that the volumes of BHT should reach as wide as possible an audience. The editors and publishers of BHT seek ways to increase the already impressive number of its readers, particularly among the younger generation of English-speaking Jewish students studying at universities and colleges, wherever they may be.
A supplementary venue for reaching the Jewish public is the wellattended Miami International Conference on Torah and Science, held biennially at The Shul of Bal Harbour in Miami, Florida. As one of the organizers of these conferences, B'Or Ha'Torah publishes its written papers.
We receive more papers than we can publish. All submitted manuscripts are peer reviewed, usually by two independent reviewers. About half of the submissions are accepted. We intend to maintain the high standards which have earned this journal its good name.
I am delighted to invite you to enjoy the thought-provoking articles in this volume of BHT, and to share it with others.
