"Jews in Space: Members of the Tribe in Orbit"

From as early as Genesis, Jews have pondered the heavens that surround our planet, as well as their place in them. As science and technology progressed, they often attempted to unite science and Jewish tradition. A Jew invented the term "science fiction," Jewish astronauts from the United States and the Soviet Union were shot into space, many of the scientists and engineers who made their treks possible were Jewish, and Jews have appeared in popular culture renditions of space, such as "Star Trek" and Mel Brooks' "Spaceballs."

"Jews in Space" features a wide array of materials from the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, including rabbinic tomes, Judaica taken into space, international works of science fiction and periodicals and other ephemera.
