About the Book
2015 National Jewish Book Award Finalist in Contemporary Jewish Life and Practice.
Dorff and Zoloth have assembled contributions that shed light on Jews, biology, and genes that are engagingly revelatory for Jew and non-Jew alike.
—Arthur L. Caplan, Drs. William F. and Virginia Connolly Mitty Professor of Bioethics and director of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU Langone Medical Center
A brilliant combination of science and philosophy that deepens one’s awe for the genetics of life and demonstrates how insights from Jewish thought can help address the vexing questions that arise because of scientists’ new capabilities to test for genes and alter them in the effort to prevent or cure disease.
—Neil S. Wenger, director of the UCLA Health Ethics Center
