Our Mission

Dor Yeshorim successfully eliminates the agonizing occurrence of fatal and debilitating genetic diseases in Jewish families worldwide through its premarital genetic screening program. As the genetic testing pioneer we stand at the forefront of genetic advances since our landmark inception more than three decades ago. Dor Yeshorim continues to set the industry standard for cutting-edge, comprehensive genetic research.

Leading medical authorities agree. The Dor Yeshorim program is the best application of preventive medicine and the most successful application of genetic sciences to date — anywhere in the world.

We utilize the latest technology, alongside a certified clinical diagnostic laboratory (CLIA) which employs the most extensive, complex, and expensive molecular DNA methodologies available.

Dor Yeshorim’s highly regulated, confidential system ensures that the vast, Jewish worldwide population we screen is fully protected. We screen an astounding 20,000 plus individuals annually.

Dor Yeshorim plays a vital and growing role in assisting families who currently have children affected by rare, previously unidentified, genetic disorders. We conduct tireless, sophisticated research to identify each family’s genetic mutation, develop reliable testing methods and provide medical referrals as well as expert genetic guidance. Dor Yeshorim is instrumental in helping these families prevent the recurrence of genetic disorders in future generations.
