AI&F Welcomes New Partner: Sinai and Synapses

We are delighted to announce that AI and Faith and Sinai and Synapses are partnering in our mutual effort to present faith perspectives on the risks and opportunities posed by AI. Sinai and Synapses espouses that mankind requires both religion and science as sources of wisdom and drivers to motivate and inspire future innovation.

Their podcasts and other media address Jewish theological, societal, and cultural perspectives on AI. A recent example is this post by Rabbi Janine Jankwitz, featuring AI&F research fellow David Zvi Kalman.

The mission of Sinai and Synapses is to offer a worldview that is both scientifically grounded and spiritually uplifting. They seek to fulfill this mission through their classes, seminars, lectures, videos, podcasts, and other writings. The writings of Sinai and Synapses envision religion as embracing critical thinking and scientific inquiry, while simultaneously offering profound spiritual insights that inspire others to make positive impacts on society. Programs at Sinai and Synapses mirror programs at AI and Faith. The Sinai and Synapses Fellowship, known as Scientists in Seminaries, is a select interfaith group of clergy, scientists, and writers who are committed to elevating religious and scientific discourse. Their podcasts and blogs include talks with professors and rabbis, academics and practitioners, and scientists and religious thinkers.

This recently established has come about through conversations over the past year between the AI&F Network Team and Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman, the founder of Sinai and Synapses. Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman is an internationally recognized teacher, presenter, scholar-in-residence, and the founder of Sinai and Synapses. He served as a pulpit rabbi, taught at the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and the Academy for Jewish Religion, and authored numerous articles and book chapters published in the Huffington Post, Nautilus, Orbiter, Science and Religion Today, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, and My Jewish Learning. His work has been supported by the John Templeton Foundation, Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies, and the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation.

Thanks to Sinai and Synapses for partnering with AI&F, we look forward to further collaborations soon. Thanks to the AI&F network team, especially co-lead partners Nicoleta Acatrinei and David Zvi Kalman, for bringing about this exciting new mutual engagement.
