Former child star Mayim Bialik has blossomed into a formidable cast member on TV’s most popular sitcom, “The Big Bang Theory.” But there’s more to Bialik than her ability to put up with Sheldon Cooper, starting with the fact that she’s a neuroscientist in real life. The four-time Emmy nominee will talk about faith and fame at a fundraiser for Temple of Aaron, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary in St. Paul’s Highland Park. To read a Q&A with Bialik, check out next Sunday’s Variety section. (7 p.m. Sun., 616 S. Mississippi River Blvd., St. Paul. $36-$125. VIP packages available; templeofaaron.org or 651-698-8874.)
