DNA tests in Israel #dna


Binyomin's post re DNA tests and Halacha (or Halocho) reminded me of the
issue of DNA tests for Genealogical purposes in Israel.
My understanding is that the tests are prohibited by the Israeli law.
Therefore MyHeritage, as an Israeli company,
can't sell a kit to anyone with address in Israel.
An Israeli can do a test only if someone >from overseas order the kit to
their overseas address and send it back >from overseas,
and the account should be linked to an overseas email.
I wonder what does the law say and what is the rule for kits >from other
companies, e.g. FamilyTreeDNA.
