Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman is director of The Center for Kohanim (Jews of Priestly origin), which is dedicated to raising awareness and preparedness among todayâ€™s Kohanim. The Center, located in the Old City of Jerusalem, maintains the website: www.Cohen-Levi.org . Sparked by the discovery of the â€œCohen Geneâ€, Rabbi Kleiman began researching the new science of molecular population genetics â€“ the tracking of peoplesâ€™ history through DNA. This book presents a summary of the fascinating findings and their possible implications.
â€œRecent work from genetics labs has validated the Biblical record of a Semitic people who chose a Jewish way of life several thousand years ago. These observations are the biological equivalent to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.â€ Dr. Harry Ostrer, Chairman of the Human Genetics Program at the NYU School of Medicine.
â€œA remarkable example of the synthesis of a large body of complex scientific work, formulated within the framework of scholarship in Jewish history and Biblical tradition.â€ Professor Karl Skorecki, Director of the Rappaport Research Institute, and Director of Nephrology at Rambam Medical Center, Technion â€“ Israel Institute of Technology .
