Who are the Jews? In his book, Harry Ostrer, an internationally renowned medical geneticist, joins this century-old debate by exploring previous efforts to define a biological basis for Jewishness and the recent discoveries of his own Jewish HapMap Project team of investigators.  Recognizing the rising popularity of genetic genealogy, he discusses whether knowledge of the genetic legacy is providing a new basis for shared Jewish identity.
