ROSENBLATT FORUM
Sunday, November 4, 1 P.M.���4P.M.

Jewish Genes: A Contemporary Look

THIS EVENT WILL NOT TAKE PLACE ON NOV. 4

IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED.

With panelists Harry Ostrer, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Todd Lencz, Associate Director of Research, The Zucker Hillside Hospital, and Rabbi Leonard Sharzer, Finkelstein Institute for Religious and Social Studies, Jewish Theological Seminary; moderated by Judith Shulevitz, science editor of The New Republic

Can Jewishness be transmitted genetically? Viewed in light of Nazi history, is this thinking dangerous? If the traits are desirable—intelligence, longevity—does the conversation change? Leading genetics researchers discuss how advances in the field can change and challenge our understanding of Jewish peoplehood and continuity, and possibly even save lives.

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

Rosenblatt Forum is made possible through a generous gift by Lief Rosenblatt, and endows a wide range of public programs.
