The Miami International Torah and Science Conferences: Absolute Standards in a World of Relativity
anonymous. 2002.  BH 13:5. CELD ID 21421

Abstract
The First Miami Torah and Science Conference was held during Hanukka of 1987 at the Sheraton Hotel of Bal Harbor. In blessing the first conference, the Lubavitcher Rebbe circled the world "relativity" in the title of the conference. He noted that Einstein's Theory of Relativity developed from his study of the nature of light. Just as physical light provides a measure of absoluteness to the physical world, so-on the spiritual plane-does the light of the Torah and its commandments provide us with an absolute standard. This is epitomized by the lights we kindle on Hanukka, the season when the Miami Torah and Science conferences are held.
