Dr. Velvl Greene

Dr. Velvl GreeneVelvl Greene was a consultant to the NASA space program; professor of public health and microbiology; chair of epidemiology and public health and professor emeritus at Ben-Gurion University; and director of the Lord Jacobovitz Center for Jewish Medical Ethics. Articles and interviews describe him as "affable,” “outgoing," and "entertaining," with eyes crinkled in a smile. He was also incisive, concise, logical, and passionate in his beliefs. There was no posturing or playacting for the sake of societal niceties. His faith wasn't based on blind acceptance, but rather a thorough investigation and weighing of the statistical and inherent facts. Greene was ever the epidemiologist and scientist. During a lifelong search for higher meaning and deeper understanding of purpose, he maintained an enduring correspondence with Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe.”
