What Jewish & Interfaith Couples Need to Know About Jewish Genetic Diseases

Whether you are single, dating, married, already have a child or planning to add to your family, you should seriously consider genetic screening if you have any Jewish heritage. It is not just Tay-Sachs. Today, there are carrier tests for many more diseases of concern to people of Jewish heritage and other ethnicities.

Join us for an interactive presentation/discussion on this critical subject with two representatives from the Jewish Genetic Disease Consortium. JGDC is an alliance of not-for-profit organizations sharing the common goal of combating Jewish genetic diseases.

This program is free of charge and open to TBE members and the community. Persons with children or grandchildren of childbearing age are also encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served.

For questions, contact the TBE office at (203) 322-6901 or e-mail
