Genetics & Jewishness: Jewish Identity from Maccabees to Mitochondria

Hosted By: Congregation Rodeph Sholom

How are genes related to Jewish identity? Can DNA show someone to be Jewish (or not)? How can genetic testing change someone’s life? During this provocative hour, we just might dismantle the myth of Jewish genetic purity.

This panel discussion will feature Lara Diamond (Jewish Genealogy Society of MD), Doron M. Behar, MD, PhD (Igentify, Gene by Gene), Harry Ostrer, MD (Einstein). It will be moderated by Rabbi Hara Person (CCAR).
