JEDUTHUN’S HEIRS: JEWISH GENES, JEWISH GROOVES
February 1, 2009 § Leave a comment
From Old Testament priests to southern Africa, geneticist David Goldstein expands scientific orthodoxy to describe how patterns of genetic variation can be used to study Jewish history. Along the way we learn not only how different Jewish populations may have formed and how they relate to one another, but also about what kinds of genetic variation human populations carry, and what that variation means, in both health and disease.
Variation of another kind will be will be provided by Reuben Radding (bass), Ben Holmes (trumpet) and Joey Weisenberg (guitar/mandolin). This trio of frequent collaborators will present some of their favorite Jewish music, including tunes from the repertoire of Dave Tarras, Naftule Brandwein, and others.
