Meir Klein is a PhD candidate at BIU-STS, where he previously completed his M.A. thesis. His research examines issues of science and religion from a biographic perspective, focusing on how prominent rabbinic figures construct the discourse and meet philosophical and social challenges. Between 2013-2015 Meir has co-founded and coordinated alongside Dr. Rachel Pear (an STS alumnus) a young researchers' forum on science and religion at the Van Leer Jerusalem institute. Together with Dr. Dov Berger (another graduate of our program), Rachel and Meir run an initiative aimed to bring into awareness the multifaceted Jewish response to Darwinian Evolution. Meir lives in Tekoa, Gush Etzion with his wife Leah and their 6 kids.
