Jews in Orbit

YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

What’s it like to spin a dreidel in zero gravity? Find out when five-time Space Shuttle astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman discusses his experiences as a Jew in orbit who brought a Torah, a tallis, a dreidel, and other Judaica on his trips into space. Dr. Valerie Neal, curator of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, will provide an overview of the history of Jewish Astronauts and their achievements in Space.
