Exploring DNA and Judaism: Poetry Discussion with Robin Dellabough
At age 67, Robin Dellabough was surprised to learn through 23andMe that her biological father was not the man who raised her and that she’s 50% Ashkenazi Jewish. Her new book of poetry, Double Helix, explores the fallout from that discovery and the process of reconciliation with her mother and both fathers, all of whom are deceased.
