About Professor Aviezer

Nathan Aviezer was born in Switzerland, educated in America and moved to Israel in 1967. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and worked as a Senior Physicist at IBM until immigrating to Israel. Since then he has been a Professor of Physics at Bar-Ilan University. For over two decades, he has spent his summers as a Visiting Professor at Cambridge and Leeds University. Professor Aviezer has been elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Research Professor of the Royal Society of London.

In addition to being a professional scientist (theoretical solid-state physicist, with over 150 scientific articles published in international journals), Professor Aviezer spends a significant amount of time exploring the subject of Torah and science. He has written two books and many articles, and lectures to a wide range of diverse groups – both religious and secular.

Aviezer’s books and lectures demonstrate that recent scientific discoveries are in remarkable agreement with the Torah account of the origin and development of the universe. He shows that maintaining belief in G-d and accepting the truth of the Torah do not require the abandonment of rational thinking. Quite the contrary. Modern science has become an important tool for understanding the Torah and for deepening one’s faith.
