LECTURE

The DNA of the Jewish People

With Bennett Greenspan, President and Founder of Family Tree DNA

Genealogy expert Bennett Greenspan will show the genetic similarities shared by Ashkenazim and Sephardim—two groups who were historically isolated from each other. Using real-life examples, including non-Jews who were surprised to learn they had Jewish roots, Greenspan will explain how genealogists can harness DNA information to enhance their family tree research. After the program, DNA kits will be available for purchase.

$10, $7 students/seniors, $5 members
