Sephardic/Mizrachi Jewish Genetic Diseases
Throughout history the Jewish people were geographically and culturally isolated from others resulting in genetic disease mutations specific to the Jewish population.
Get screened before you have kids to know your carrier status. Preconception genetic carrier testing is advised for all individuals and/or couples. It is usually painless and done through saliva or a cheek swab.
For Healthcare Professionals
In general medical doctors and obstetrician-gynecologists lack full training in genetic diseases, particularly Jewish ones. We value providing guidance to these professionals through grand rounds and personal outreach.
Whether it's your time or your dollars, we always need extra help!
One of our goals is to educate Rabbis and spiritual leaders about genetic disorders common in the SMJ community.
We offer training to these leaders so they can educate their congregations.
