Shabbat with Dovid Imbo

  • Dovid Yehuda Imbo was born and raised on the Near West Side of Chicago. He received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1988, and did his postdoctoral work at Harvard University as a member of the Harvard Society of Fellows. He has been a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Illinois at Chicago since 1992, where he is also the Director of the newly formed "Laboratory for Quantum Theory at the Extremes". His research focuses on the connections between quantum physics, pure mathematics, formal logic, and pure philosophy. He converted to Judaism in March 2017.

  • FROM GHETTO TO QUANTUM PHYSICS TO JUDAISM

    Hear the fascinating journey of theoretical physicist Dovid Yehuda Imbo as he went from the violent streets of the Near West Side of Chicago, to the halls of Harvard University, to the orthodox synagogues of West Rogers Park. And learn a little about the surprising connections between cutting-edge physics research and Chassidus along the way. 

    ENTANGLED IDENTITIES: THE NATURE AND LOGIC OF EXISTENCE IN PHYSICS AND KABBALAH

    We will discuss some novel and bizarre features of the physics of the ultra-microscopic "quantum" realm, and relate the resulting conceptual worldview to that of the Kabbalistic and Chassidic masters. Special attention will be given to the notions of existence, identity, logic, creation, and the infinite. 

    Professor Imbo will also be joining us Shabbat day following services for a sponsored Kiddush and continued discussion.
