What We Do

The Program for Jewish Genetic Health is dedicated to addressing all genetic health issues specific to Jews, with the ultimate goal of helping to protect the health of the Jewish community and its future generations.  Our vision is that nobody in the Jewish community facing a genetic health issue should be deprived of proper care due to lack of awareness, financial barriers or difficulty in navigating the healthcare system.

To see this vision through, we provide three corresponding services:

  • EDUCATION: by providing live and online educational symposia for lay people and community leaders 

  • GENETIC TESTING: by providing accessible and affordable options for genetic testing services to all—regardless of financial situation

  • RESOURCE AND SUPPORT CENTER: by serving as a Jewish professional resource network and support center
