Moishe Hawkins
Fictional Character
"Before the Beginning"
Set in the Future
Type of Appearance: Direct
Nationality: United States
Religion: Judaism (converted)
Occupation: Cosmologist

Moishe (formerly Max) Hawkins was an American cosmologist. Like the rest of the world, he'd converted to Judaism after it was learned that the Jews were indeed God's chosen people.

Hawkins convinced his friend Chaim Alexov that using the time-viewer to look one nanosecond after the end of the universe was a bad idea. Hawkins argued that the human race had already pushed its luck by looking before the beginning, and while God had vowed to love the Jews until the end of time, there were no guarantees about how He'd feel after the end.

To Alexov's disappointment, the issue went unresolved in his lifetime. Three centuries later, a comet hit Earth.[1]
