This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday December 15

2:00 PM  –  3:00 PM


Join us for our next JewishGen talk: a book discussion with speakers Libby Copeland and Jennifer Mendelsohn!


In the book The Lost Family, journalist Libby Copeland investigates what happens when we embark on a vast social experiment with little understanding of the ramifications. She is an award-winning journalist and author, who writes about culture, science, and human behavior and whose work has appeared in The Atlantic, Slate, Smithsonian, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Fast Company. In this talk, Copeland will be joined by well-known journalist and genealogist Jennifer Mendelsohn for a discussion about the book and the significance of DNA testing within Jewish communities and beyond.
