Event Details

Join us at the New York Genome Center in lower Manhattan as we explore how the revolution in genetic research over the past few decades has transformed the way we think about Jewish identity, provided new insights into Jewish health, and revealed how the unique history of the Jewish people has left traces in their DNA. The evening is structured to engage the community through vivid discussions surrounding these issues and will include genomic analysis of several special guests.
