The galloping science of genetics has immediate importance for Jewish people with European ancestry.
You may be a carrier for a recessive disease found in 1 of 4 Jews, and you will never have the disease yourself, or you can be a carrier of a specific cancer gene called BRCA 1 and BRCA 2. And you may not!
Come and learn why your history and that of your ancestors is vitally important to you, your children, and your children’s children. Learn the language, understand the risks, and spread your knowledge to your families.
