Genetic Engineering, Jewish Law, and the Remaking of Life

An exploration of genetic engineering through the lens of Jewish law and values. Under what circumstances should the DNA modification of new and already living plants, animals, and humans be permitted?

This webinar was part of the Day of Halakhic Study (sponsored by the Rabbinical Assembly’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards), a movement-wide event during which Conservative/Masorti congregations, communities, and schools come together to study Rabbi Nevins’s responsum “Halakhic Perspectives on Genetically Modified Organisms.”
