Dr. Harry Ostrer, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in conversation with Judith Shulevitz, The New Republic

Can Jewishness be transmitted genetically? Viewed in light of Nazi history, is such thinking dangerous? Ostrer, a leading figure in the field of population genetics, and Shulevitz discuss how scientific advances can challenge our understanding of Jewish peoplehood and continuity, and possibly even save lives.
