human condition. Using technology to alter the human body has long been an accepted part of Jewish tradition, from the use of spectacles to artificial hips, and thus genetic enhancement for the same end would seem not impermissible within the Jewish tradition. In fact, the demands of halachah call on Jews to make changes to the body and some, such as circumcision, an obligation. Intricate narratives about tikkun olam or the duty to repair a world understood as broken frame the response to medicine in a general sense. .

We remain in discussion with the Torah, the Talmud, and the medieval commentators, Zoloth concludes. Indeed, our capacity to learn from our past is the very sign of our ability to teach toward the future.
