The DNA of the Jewish People with Bennett Greenspan
Beginning in the 1970’s, many books and articles were written on the origins of Ashkenazi Jews. Some hypothesized that Ashkenazi Jews descended from an Eastern European kingdom that converted to Judaism en masse in the 8th century, thereby discrediting the Jewish people’s connection to the land of Israel. Join us for a discussion about these claims and compare them to the genetic record. Bennett Greenspan is a fellow Beth Yeshurun member and the President of Family Tree DNA (www.familytreedna.com). He is also the author of the book, "History Unearthed Daily." He writes and speaks widely about DNA and genealogy.
