Dr. Alexander Poltorak was trained as a theoretical physicist in Russia. He is Chairman and CEO of General Patent Corporation. He served as an Assistant Professor of Biomathematics at Cornell University Medical College, as an Assistant Professor of Physics at Touro College, he guest-lectured at Columbia University School of Engineering and Business School.
He is presently affiliated with the CUNY serving as an adjunct professor of physics at the City College of New York and Research Fellow at the Institute for Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Lasers. Alex Poltorak authored several books and many articles. He blogs about physics, kabbalah and Jewish philosophy.
In a new web video series titled “Quantum Torah,” he dispels the prevailing view that Torah and science usually don’t mesh very well together.
“The Midrash, an ancient repository of rabbinic wisdom, suggests that when God created the world, He looked to the Torah to serve as its blueprint,” he said. “If this is the case, shouldn’t the world have some resemblance to the blueprint—the Torah?”
In the first episode of Quantum Torah, Dr. Poltorak shows a glimpse of how modern ideas of quantum physics beautifully mesh with the ancient Torah.
