Stem Cells: A Jewish Approach

Monsters and Critics, a news blog in the UK, picked up my essay on stem cells for their OUTSIDE VIEW column. I hope that this piece gets out there -- more people need to hear about Sen. Brownback's campaign to spread misinformation on the progress of stem cell research.

In other news, last week I was seated (thanks Alison) at a dinner with Judea Pearl, father of the late Daniel Pearl. Daniel was being honored by the Temple of Understanding. Judea was a powerful speaker, and he passionately critiqued Ahamadinejad for not knowing history -- "Jews are not from Germany. We were formed at Sinai!" Two Israeli violinists played to honor Pearl- a maginficent tribute to both the son and father. I urge folks to visit the Daniel Pearl Foundation site. Amazing work.
