Description

The Talmud Sages had extraordinary insights into human genetics. In BHT 19 Rabbi Professor Avraham Steinberg, MD, explains that Jewish law today permits research on embryonic stem cells because the Talmud states that in its first forty days the embryo is not yet a human being. Biologist Leah Poltorak sharpens the focus and shows that new genetic research supports the opinion in the Talmud that the determination of male gender takes forty days; and of female gender, eighty days.
