Addendum to Previous Post

It turns out that Rav Tendler spoke about a very similar idea yesterday at the 4th Annual YU Student Medical Ethics Conference on Genetics with regard to a legend about Moshe Rabeinu and overcoming his own natural bad traits to become the incredible person, leader, and navi that he was - specifically because of his ability to surpass his genetic pre-dispositions. That, along with everything else Rav Tendler said, was fascinating as usual (the rest of the conference was amazing too, just for the record).

Notes for the conference can be found at the ever-talented and fastest-typist-ever Curious Jew's blog here.

The full audio recording of the conference and the accompanying PowerPoint presentations should be available on YU Torah.org within the week.
