The Los Angeles Times features new genetic research led by Harry Ostrer, M.D., that makes the case for the biological basis of Jewishness. The recently published paper demonstrated that North African Jews’ genetic signatures are more closely related to Jews from around the world than to their non-Jewish North African neighbors. The work is a companion to Dr. Ostrer’s earlier research with similar findings in European and Middle Eastern Jews. Dr. Ostrer is professor of pathology, of genetics and of pediatrics at Einstein and director of genetic and genomic testing at Montefiore Medical Center.
