|The Miami International Conference on Torah and Science: Absolute Standards in an Age of Relativity|
The First Miami Torah and science conference was held during Hanukkah of 1987 at the Sheraton Hotel of Bal Harbour. In blessing the first conference, the Lubavitcher Rebbe circled the word "relativity" in the subtitle 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 Hanukkah.
