Scientists have studied breeding habits in animal populations for centuries, investigating mate selection, reproductive patterns, and evolutionary consequences. What if similar research methods were applied to human populations? This presentation brings together experts in evolutionary biology, genetics, the scientific study of religion, and sociology to answer this question as it relates to the Jews. Geneticists from Stanford and Penn will explore evidence of past mating patterns, while sociologists from Brandeis and Whitman will analyze current trends in mate selection and fertility. Together, these specialists will use science to forecast the future of the Jews in the US and abroad.
