DNA Test Program – MyHeritage

MyHeritage DNA

Connect with your culture…discover your history…and forge a deeper bond with your congregation with this special program.

Participation is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

  1. See Lynn to purchase your kit in the temple office. She’ll note your and your family’s ID numbers for later reference.
  2. Go home, register your kit online.
  3. Collect your sample by taking a simple cheek swab and mail it to MyHeritage in the envelope provided.

In four to six weeks, you’ll receive your personal results via e-mail. 

The Big Reveal:

And now the fun begins! On Friday, May 11th join us for a Shabbat dinner (which is included in the purchase of the kit) gathering where you’ll be invited to share your results (if you so desire) with the congregation. You should mail your sample by very early April in order to get your results in time to participate.

Also included:

A guest speaker, direct from MyHeritage’s Or Yehuda headquarters, will join us to talk about Jewish heritage and the unique challenges of tracing our DNA.

Cousins matching (optional): MyHeritage will analyze the results from all participants in our group to identify close and distant relatives among us. You may find that your friends are actually your cousins!

The cost is $80 per kit…less than the cost of the kit alone when you order online!
