Humans have been tinkering with lifeforms since the beginning of history, breeding plants and animals to suit their needs. Recent rapid developments in genetic engineering have allowed researchers and industry to improve crop yields, invent new medicines and therapies, and increase the quality of life. Yet the blending of DNA from different species also presents risks both physical and ethical. What do Jewish sources offer to guide our exploration of this brave new world? $25 - Register at www.jtsa.edu/Berkshires
