[VIDEO] If Baruch Obama and Dick Cheney are cousins, what about us?
I’ve said it before, we—Jews—are family.
We are the children of Avraham Avinu (Abraham Our Father) and some of us are descendants of the first Jewish priest—the first Cohen—Aaron, brother of Moshe Rabbenu (Moses Our Teacher.)
It’s all there in Jon Entine’s cutting-edge new book, Abraham’s Children, where he explores questions of Jewish race and identity. Most controversially, Entine digs deep into DNA evidence to discover to what extent the Jewish people are “chosen.”
What? No reading for you? OK. Don’t read all about it—we have video, doh.
