The Priestly Dynasty and DNA

From the Temple Institute:

We would like to inform all our newsletter subscribers that this week's Temple Talk radio hour, (Tuesday, June 21, 6:00 PM Israel time - 11:00 AM Eastern time, broadcast from the Israel National Radio website), will feature an interview with Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman, director of the Center for Kohanim in Jerusalem’s Old City, and author of the book, DNA and Tradition - the Genetic Link to the Ancient Hebrews. We invite you to join Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven, as they discuss Aharon the high priest and progenitor of the kohanic (priestly) dynasty, and hear Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman describe how modern science sheds a new light of verification upon the three thousand year old priestly tradition.

We hope also to discuss the spiritual beauty embodied in the menorah, as touched upon in this past Shabbat's Torah reading, as well as the timely episode of the meraglim - the spies - who lost faith in G-d's promise of the Land of Israel, as related in the upcoming Torah portion. As always, Rabbi Richman will conclude the show with instruction for Bnei Noach - righteous Gentiles - who long to follow the path of Torah as laid out for the nations of the world.
