Chapter 9 - When Harry Met Stanley

The long-running story of the secret Jews of New Mexico intersects the Medina family. Shonnie's cousin, who carries the mutation, recovers a sense of her Jewish heritage. New Mexico historian Stanley Hordes, a tireless investigator, organizes the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies. Searching for Jewish genetic markers, Harry Ostrer collects DNA from Hispanos at the Medina family restaurant in Culebra. The chapter teases apart the genetic and cultural strands of identity.
