How many Catholics have Jewish ancestry? What does Judaism have to say about genetically modified food?
Plus: Washington Post senior editor Marc Fisher reports from Tunisia on the North African country’s dwindling Jewish community; a look at Olympia, Washington, a community fractured by the Israeli/Palestinian conflict; and a profile of Soviet dissident turned Jewish Agency head Natan Sharansky.
