The periodical B.D.D. aims firstly to serve the needs of Torah-observant Jews, who maintain contact with intellectual developments in secular culture and are interested in modern thinking and research. A significant body of such people exists nowadays, with a high level of general education. B.D.D. wishes to act as a vehicle for the dissemination of new ideas, and the expression of different approaches to the interaction between Torah and general scholarship. In addition, the journal caters to the non-religious intellectual who wishes to understand how Torah-observers grapple with the challenges that science and general culture in the modern era present to them. The periodical aims to cover a wide variety of fields of scholarship and therefore includes articles in the exact sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering), the life sciences (biology, medicine, psychology), the social sciences (economics, sociology, anthropology), the environmental sciences, humanities, and Judaica (philosophy, history, archeology, law, literature). Whilst the majority of articles are in Hebrew, a certain number of English articles are included as well Two categories of articles are envisaged. The first deals with new ideas in the area of Torah scholarship, and although the articles are primarily designed for specialists, they will also appeal to the nonspecialist who is prepared to undertake some background reading. The second category, aimed at a wider public, consists of reviews and discussions of relevant topics. All articles submitted for publication are sent to appropriate referees for approval. This journal will be of interest to Torah-observant Jews in universities, religious establishments, and government institutions, to graduates of Yeshivot Hesder, and students in the upper classes of high schools, and to all others concerned with the Torah-Madda interaction.
