Germline mutations in the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been demonstrated in the majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer families. The increased risk to develop both breast and ovarian cancer associated with inheriting a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has been well established. It has also been suggested that is an overrepresentation of other cancers such as colon, prostate and pancreatic cancer present in BRCA1 or BRCA2 families. Population specific mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been identified. In the Ashkenazi Jewish population, 3 specific mutations have been seen in 2% of the population. This study will anonymously screen archived tissue samples of Ashkenazi Jewish individuals diagnosed with cancer between 1993 and 1996 at MSKCC for the three founder mutations seen in the Ashkenazi Jewish population. Results will be stratified by tumor type and compared with the population frequency to determine whether individuals inheriting mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 may have an increased risk to ...
Ashkenazi Jews / Ashkenazic Jews / Ashkenazim are Jews who originally lived in northern and eastern Europe. They once lived in the area of Rhineland and France and after the crusades they moved to Poland, Lithuania and Russia. In the 17th century, avoiding persecution, many Jews moved to and settled in Western Europe. Scientists believe that Ashkenazi Jews originally came from the Land of Israel and initially went to Italy, France, and Germany. Later, during pogroms in the middle ages, mainly in Germany, they fled to Poland and Lithuania, and from there they spread over the rest of Eastern Europe. They then adopted the Yiddish language.[18][19] After that, two terms, Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews, became commonly used: The former indicates the Jews who worshiped in the German way and spoke Yiddish, the latter indicates the Jews who worshiped in the Spanish way and spoke the Ladino language. They differ in language (pronunciation), cultural tradition and worship style. During World War II, about 6 ...
Outside of their origins in ancient Israel, the history of Ashkenazim is shrouded in mystery,[52] and many theories have arisen speculating on their emergence as a distinct community of Jews.[53] The best supported theory is the one that details a Jewish migration from Israel through what is now Italy and other parts of southern Europe.[54] The historical record attests to Jewish communities in southern Europe since pre-Christian times.[55] Many Jews were denied full Roman citizenship until Emperor Caracalla granted all free peoples this privilege in 212. Jews were required to pay a poll tax until the reign of Emperor Julian in 363. In the late Roman Empire, Jews were free to form networks of cultural and religious ties and enter into various local occupations. But, after Christianity became the official religion of Rome and Constantinople in 380, Jews were increasingly marginalized. The history of Jews in Greece goes back to at least the Archaic Era of Greece, when the classical culture of ...

Lets proceed. With the facts Ive laid out, only the most obtuse reader can resist the pronouncement that Ashkenazi Jews are, on average, exceptionally intelligent. I emphasize the word exceptional because I am frequently chided as an exceptionalist and I want to make it clear that, yes, I do, in fact, believe specific cultures have evidenced greater ability to produce exceptional individuals and exceptional societies.. That said, the important question is… Why is the IQ of Ashkenazi Jews so high? Is the reason genetic, environmental, cultural, educational? A unique combination of several? Here are eight theories:. Squeezed Into Brilliance: Jews in Europe were officially excluded from common occupations such as agriculture from 800-1700 A.D. This restriction forced the Ashkenazim for 900 years into intellectually more demanding vocations, such as trade and finance. Ashkenazim who werent mathematically and verbally adept enough to succeed in these jobs drifted away from Judaism-low IQs ...
The relations of Jews and Christians were fraught with tensions about the death of Jesus and the Christian perception of Jewish obstinacy in refusing to accept the only faith the Christians knew in the world. The pressure on Jews to accept Christianity was intense.[36] Recent years have seen a debate among historians on the nature of Jewish-Christian relations in medieval Europe. Traditionally, historians focused on the trials Jews had to endure in this period. Christian violence towards Jews was rife, as were ritual murder accusations, expulsions, and extortion. However, recently historians have begun to show evidence of other relationships between Jews and Christians, suggesting Jews were more embedded into Christian society than was previously thought. Jonathan Elukin is one historian who thinks in this vein, as elucidated in his book Living Together, Living Apart. He shows that during the Crusades, some Jews were hidden and protected from being attacked by Christians. Some Jews worked in ...
This week on Slate I read a controversial piece: American Jews Are Secular, Intermarried, and Assimilated: Great News! which was written about the recent Pew study on American Jews. The author, Gabriel Roth, tells American Jewry to embrace their secular, intermarried selves and that unless theyre Orthodox and believe, theres no reason to keep this race purity going on. He explains that other than Orthodox Jews, Jews will stop existing soon, and thats a good thing. (Oy!) Roth writes:. And as an intermarried Jewish nonbeliever, I think its time we anxious Jews stopped worrying and learned to love our assimilated condition-even if it means that our children call themselves half-Jewish and our grandchildren dont consider themselves Jews at all. Im not talking, here, to religious Jews, because their position is unarguable: If you believe that Jewish traditions are part of a covenant with God, of course you want your children to continue them.. Roth and I both agree that staying Jewish for ...
Contemporary Jews retain a genetic imprint from their Near Eastern ancestry, but obtained substantial genetic components from their neighboring populations during their history. Whether they received any genetic contribution from the Far East remains unknown, but frequent communication with the Chinese has been observed since the Silk Road period. To address this issue, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variation from 55,595 Eurasians are analyzed. The existence of some eastern Eurasian haplotypes in eastern Ashkenazi Jews supports an East Asian genetic contribution, likely from Chinese. Further evidence indicates that this connection can be attributed to a gene flow event that occurred less than 1.4 kilo-years ago (kya), which falls within the time frame of the Silk Road scenario and fits well with historical records and archaeological discoveries. This observed genetic contribution from Chinese to Ashkenazi Jews demonstrates that the historical exchange between Ashkenazim and the Far East was not ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Benefits and costs of screening Ashkenazi Jewish women for BRCA1 and BRCA2. AU - Grann, Victor R.. AU - Whang, William. AU - Jacobson, Judith S.. AU - Heitjan, Daniel F.. AU - Antman, Karen H.. AU - Neugut, Alfred I.. PY - 1999/2. Y1 - 1999/2. N2 - Purpose: To determine the survival benefit and cost-effectiveness of screening Ashkenazi Jewish women for three specific BRCA 1/2 gene mutations. Methods: We used a Markov model and Monte Carlo analysis to estimate the survival benefit and cost-effectiveness of screening for three specific mutations in a population in which their prevalence is 2.5% and the associated cancer risks are 56% for breast cancer and 16% for ovarian cancer. We assumed that the sensitivity and specificity of the test were 98% and 99%, respectively, that bilateral prophylactic oophorectomy would reduce ovarian cancer risk by 45%, and that bilateral prophylactic mastectomy would reduce breast cancer risk by 90%. We used Medicare payment data far treatment costs ...
The origin and history of the Ashkenazi Jewish population have long been of great interest, and advances in high-throughput genetic analysis have recently provided a new approach for investigating these topics. We and others have argued on the basis of genome-wide data that the Ashkenazi Jewish population derives its ancestry from a combination of sources tracing to both Europe and the Middle East. It has been claimed, however, through a reanalysis of some of our data, that a large part of the ancestry of the Ashkenazi population originates with the Khazars, a Turkic-speaking group that lived to the north of the Caucasus region ~1,000 years ago. Because the Khazar population has left no obvious modern descendants that could enable a clear test for a contribution to Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, the Khazar hypothesis has been difficult to examine using genetics. Furthermore, because only limited genetic data have been available from the Caucasus region, and because these data have been concentrated ...
Der Führer and his minions are gone now, but they sure didnt lose to the Jews; the Jews who survived were the beneficiaries of the Allies, countries which really didnt have all that much use for the Jews themselves. During the war, the United States maintained tight immigration controls, which kept many Jewish refugees out. The Brits didnt care for them much either, and shut off emigration to Palestine to placate the Arabs (who supported Adolf Hitler anyway), and the Soviet Union was no great place for Jews, either.. What we see now is that in places where Jews are left alone, or are the majority and can thrive, thrive they do! American Jews are the ultimate expression of the American dream: studying hard in school, getting the top college admissions, and then working hard as professionals, doing exactly what we say everyone ought to do. If all Americans lived under the cultural norms of American Jews, virtually every problem we have in this country would disappear.. ...
Jack Johnston August 2, 2008 @ 2:26 pm Nabil: Jews have been aware of the power of the press in the US for a hundred years. The New York Times, New York Post,Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News, Boston Globe, Washington Post are all owned/operated/controlled by jews. The Neuhaus brothers,there are three and their father changed the name to Newhouse, own 40 or more major newspapers in the US including the Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Portland Oregonian. The Neuhauss also own many of the major US magazines such as Newsweek,New Yorker,Vanity Fair etc.. Jews other than the Neuhauss own the papers in New York. Jews also own/control all four of the major US television networks ie; ABC,NBS,CBS,FOX and most if not all of the local television stations in the top ten US television markets.

So Ostrer and his colleagues gathered new DNA samples from Jews living everywhere from Morocco to Yemen. Using three distinct strategies for identifying genetic similarities, including a method called identity by descent (IBD) that can determine how closely related two individuals are, the team compared these DNA samples to each other, to the samples from their 2010 study, and to samples from non-Jews. Most of the sampled groups shared genetic features, indicating a common heritage dating back to before Roman times, the team reports today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. North African Jews-and Moroccan/Algerian Jews in particular-showed a close genetic connection to Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews, and little evidence of interbreeding with contemporary non-Jewish populations in North Africa. Georgian Jews shared genetic features with Middle Eastern Jews, instead. Yemenite Jews were distantly related to Middle Eastern Jews, while Ethiopian Jews formed their own cluster and ...
We have analyzed the maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA from each of nine geographically separated Jewish groups, eight non-Jewish host populations, and an Israeli Arab/Palestinian population, and we have compared the differences found in Jews and non-Jews with those found using Y-chromosome data that were obtained, in most cases, from the same population samples. The results suggest that most Jewish communities were founded by relatively few women, that the founding process was independent in different geographic areas, and that subsequent genetic input from surrounding populations was limited on the female side. In sharp contrast to this, the paternally inherited Y chromosome shows diversity similar to that of neighboring populations and shows no evidence of founder effects. These sex-specific differences demonstrate an important role for culture in shaping patterns of genetic variation and are likely to have significant epidemiological implications for studies involving these populations. ...
As part of a broader collaborative network of exome sequencing studies, we developed a jointly called data set of 5,685 Ashkenazi Jewish exomes. We make publicly available a resource of site and allele frequencies, which should serve as a reference for medical genetics in the Ashkenazim (hosted in part at https://ibd.broadinstitute.org, also available in gnomAD at http://gnomad.broadinstitute.org). We estimate that 34% of protein-coding alleles present in the Ashkenazi Jewish population at frequencies greater than 0.2% are significantly more frequent (mean 15-fold) than their maximum frequency observed in other reference populations. Arising via a well-described founder effect approximately 30 generations ago, this catalog of enriched alleles can contribute to differences in genetic risk and overall prevalence of diseases between populations. As validation we document 148 AJ enriched protein-altering alleles that overlap with pathogenic ClinVar alleles (table available at ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of counseling Ashkenazi jewish women about breast cancer risk. AU - Bowen, Deborah J.. AU - Burke, Wylie. AU - Culver, Julie O.. AU - Press, Nancy. AU - Crystal, Susan. PY - 2006/1/1. Y1 - 2006/1/1. N2 - The goal of this study was to determine whether genetic counseling or psychosocial group counseling provided to Ashkenazi women can reduce breast cancer worry, cancer risk perception, and interest in having genetic testing. Women (N = 211) were randomized to receive individual genetic risk counseling, to receive a group psychosocial group counseling, or to serve as a control group. The authors found that both counseling methods reduced cancer worry, lowered perceptions of breast cancer risk, and decreased interest in having genetic testing. Counseling can help women gain a more accurate perception of their risk, expose them to the benefits and limitations of genetic testing, and reduce their worry about cancer.. AB - The goal of this study was to determine whether genetic ...
To address the degree to which paternal gene flow may have affected the Jewish gene pool, we estimated approximate admixture levels in our Jewish samples from Europe. This question remains unresolved in particular for the Ashkenazi community. Our results indicated a relatively minor contribution of European Y chromosomes to the Ashkenazim. If we assume 80 generations since the founding of the Ashkenazi population, then the rate of admixture would be ,0.5% per generation (47). Interestingly, our total admixture estimate is very similar to Motulskys (8) average estimate of 12.5% based on 18 classical genetic markers. However, the 18 markers in Motulskys (8) study fell into two classes: a low admixture class and a high admixture class. Similarly, Cavalli-Sforza and Carmelli (48) found significant heterogeneity of admixture rates for different loci in the Ashkenazim. Because admixture should affect all loci to the same degree, there are two possible explanations for the heterogeneity: (i) ...

A website that is close to the Iranian regime is explaining why the Islamist powers that run the nation are having problems.. Its the Jews.. Of course.. But not just the Jews … its their sorcery.. The report comes from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which monitors media in the Middle East.. The site reports Mehdi Taeb, who is close to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and leads the Ammar Base think tank, said this month that the Jews are the most powerful sorcerers in the world today and that they have used their powers to attack Iran.. Taeb said the Jews have turned the United States into their tool and have gotten it to impose sanctions on Iran.. He added that while Iran has so far withstood their assaults, they have not yet used the full scope of their powers, MEMRI reported.. The Iranian regime website, according to Rasanews.ir, said: Speaking on April 20, 2013, to students at a religious seminary in Ahwaz, Mehdi Taeb noted, The Jews are currently subjecting us ...
There just seems to be little interest in guaranteeing the future of Jewish life in America. Intermarriage rates are one indicator of this problem. Affiliation with institutions is another. A third indicator is the failure of the Jewish community to adopt any sense of sacrifice for the sake of the future. George Hanuss Five Percent for Jewish Education plan is a program which could work, but Id like to see it at 10% or 15%. Its not going to happen, of course; too many of us are more interested in Caribbean vacations and building on to our homes and purchasing fancy cars. Think back to great-grandparents who had little to spend on food, and yet they gave money to Hebrew Loan Funds and to support mikvaos, and contributed their time to Jewish community infrastructure; todays level of consumerism would have been unthinkable to them ...
Sexual Abuse Survivor Seeks Support from Orthodox Jewish Community for Support with Law Reform. A young man, Chaim Levin, growing up in the Crown Heights Section of Brooklyn in an Ultra Conservative Orthodox Jewish Community, goes public with allegations that his cousin sexually abused him repeatedly from age six until he was ten. The young boy confided in his rabbi, and was told to tell his parents, but not to reveal the identity of his cousin to avoid a family war. The New York Daily News went on to report that for the next six years, the cousin was a welcomed member of the family to his house. Chaim, however, revealed he was attracted to men and not women and was thrown out of yeshiva. One door after another was closed to him and he was shunned by the community and abandoned by his own family.. Now, at age 27, he has formed a 103-member support group and is leading the struggle for legal reform of the statute of limitations currently on the books to seek justice for victims of child sex ...
By the time Chaya was accepted into an eating-disorder treatment program in 2007, she weighed 52 pounds. Too weak to walk, she was carried in.

Germline genetic testing of BRCA1 and BRCA2 is available to identify individuals at increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers, as individuals with an inherited cancer syndrome may benefit from screening and prevention strategies to reduce their risk. The prevalence of BRCA mutations in the population is estimated between 1 in 300 and 1 in 800; however, specific mutations known as founder mutations occur more often in populations founded by a small ancestral group, including Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jews, French Canadians, and Icelanders. The prevalence of BRCA mutations in the Ashkenazi Jewish population is approximately 1 in 40. Three recurrent BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations have been identified in Ashkenazi Jewish individuals (i.e., a genetically distinct population of Jewish people of eastern and central European ancestry) and make up the vast majority of BRCA mutations that occur in this population. Rearrangements, such as large genomic alterations including translocations, inversions, ...
JTA) - The president of Polands largest Jewish group accused other Jewish leaders of exaggerating the countrys anti-Semitism problem as part of a political war on the right-wing ruling party.. Artur Hofman, who heads the TSKZ cultural organization of Polish Jews, defended the government Wednesday during an interview with JTA about a meeting that he and two other Jewish activists had earlier that day with Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a founder of the Law and Justice Party.. The meeting and Hofmans defense of Law and Justice offered a rare public indication of a split in the ranks of Polish Jewish leaders over relations with the government.. Two weeks prior to the meeting Leslaw Piszewski, the president of the Union of Jewish Communities in Poland, and Anna Chipczynska, head of the Warsaw community, sent a letter to Kaczynski saying Polish Jews are increasingly fearful due to rising anti-Semitism and government inaction..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Contribution of HPC1 (RNASEL) and HPCX variants to prostate cancer in a founder population. AU - Agalliu, Ilir. AU - Leanza, Suzanne M.. AU - Smith, Lorie. AU - Trent, Jeffrey M.. AU - Carpten, John D.. AU - Bailey-Wilson, Joan E.. AU - Burk, Robert D.. PY - 2010/11/1. Y1 - 2010/11/1. N2 - BACKGROUND Prostate cancer is a genetically complex disease with locus and disease heterogeneity. The RNASEL gene and HPCX locus have been implicated in hereditary prostate cancer; however, their contributions to sporadic forms of this malignancy remain uncertain. METHODS Associations of prostate cancer with two variants in the RNASEL gene (a founder mutation, 471delAAAG, and a non-synonymous SNP, rs486907), and with five microsatellite markers in the HPCX locus, were examined in 979 cases and 1,251 controls of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated using logistic regression models. RESULTS There was an inverse association between RNASEL ...
This study provides clear evidence for association of HNF4A P2 promoter SNPs with type 2 diabetes in the Ashkenazim. Importantly, these results are replicated in the subset of novel samples (393 case and 138 control subjects) that are independent of those used in the original report (2), with a point estimate of OR 1.70 (P = 0.0014) for rs1884613 (Table 1). However, despite the relatively high density of SNPs used to span the 10-Mb candidate interval (1 SNP/2 Kb on average), we were unable to refine the association signal beyond the two originally associated SNPs (rs1884613 and rs2144908) in the Ashkenazim. Thus, further fine-mapping in this region will be required to identify the underlying causal variant. In contrast, in UK4, this association result could not be replicated (OR ∼1.04; P , 0.5). Furthermore, the CIs for the ORs in UK4 and the Ashkenazim did not overlap (supplementary Table 2), showing that the risk of P2 SNPs on type 2 diabetes in these two groups is significantly different (P ...

Ethnic groups around the world are known to have an increased risk of particular genetic diseases. Likewise, Jewish individuals of Eastern European (Ashkenazi) background have a higher risk than others of certain diseases and Jewish individuals of Northern Africa, Spain, Portugal and the Middle East (Sephardic) background have a higher risk than others of different diseases. Non-Jews and Jews by Choice are also at risk for being carriers of genetic diseases.. Most of these are due to autosomal recessive inheritance. There are additional genetic disorders which have a higher frequency in the Jewish population and are related to dominant disease predisposition genes such as the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which are associated with an increased risk for breast and ovarian cancer.. ...
Fifty six years ago, the Jews decided to establish a state in the Land of Israel. Initially, America supported the idea. But when it realized the extent of the Arab opposition, it backed down. The entire world stood back and shirked responsibility toward the small Jewish community in the Holy Land. They all waited to see how seven Arab armies would continue from the point that Rommel stopped at Al Alamein -- and add the 600,000 Jews of the Land of Israel to the 6,000,000 already murdered in Europe. An embargo was imposed on weapons sales to the determined but practically defenseless Jewish community. Old World War Two weapons shipments that U.S. Jews attempted to ship to Israel were confiscated in the New Jersey port. Never has such a desperate, dangerous and hopeless attempt been made to establish a state. The Arabs did not hide their intentions as to the fate of the Jews in that war - or in the wars that followed. The Jews were sentenced to annihilation with shocking cruelty. The leader of the ...
Patients are not required to undergo BRCA1 and BRCA2 or other genetic mutation tests in order to enroll on the study. Note: in the event a patient is tested and is found to be a mutation carrier, she would be excluded from the study. It would be an extremely rare/unlikely scenario for patients to be discovered BRCA positive after the completion of PBI, as all patients with risk factors for BRCA mutations (positive family history, Ashkenazi Jewish descent, ER-/PR-/her2-neu-negative receptor status) are usually tested prior to radiation. Should such a situation exist, these patients will be given the option of remaining on the breast conservation paradigm or opting for mastectomy (as is done in this rare scenario is standard of care practice). The patient will be replaced on the trial ...
Jewish ethnicity and religion are completely interwoven, and to separate them misses the point of what the Jews say about themselves. it is at the center of the religious story that practicing Jews believe about themselves and their religion and ethnic groups history. God did not promise to make a mighty nation out of just anyones family; he promised it to Abraham. God did not send Moses to deliver just anyone out of Egypt; he sent Moses to deliver the Jews*. God did not make the covenant with just anyone; he made it with the Jews. throughout the Hebrew Bible, God did not support just any piddling little tribe in the Levant in all those wars; he supported the Jews. God did not give a land of milk and honey to just anyone; he gave it to the Jews. God did not send prophets to go bug just anybody to keep to the covenant; he sent them to go bug the Jews. God did not punish just anyone whenever the Jews broke their part of the covenant; he punished the Jews. the Jewish ethnicity is essential to ...
For more than a century, Jews and non-Jews alike have tried to define the relatedness of contemporary Jewish people. Previous genetic studies of blood group and serum markers suggested that Jewish groups had Middle Eastern origin with greater genetic similarity between paired Jewish populations. However, these and successor studies of monoallelic Y chromosomal and mitochondrial genetic markers did not resolve the issues of within and between-group Jewish genetic identity. Here, genome-wide analysis of seven Jewish groups (Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian, Italian, Turkish, Greek, and Ashkenazi) and comparison with non-Jewish groups demonstrated distinctive Jewish population clusters, each with shared Middle Eastern ancestry, proximity to contemporary Middle Eastern populations, and variable degrees of European and North African admixture. Two major groups were identified by principal component, phylogenetic, and identity by descent (IBD) analysis: Middle Eastern Jews and European/Syrian Jews. The IBD ...

Wilson disease is an autosomal recessive disease caused by pathogenic variants in the gene ATP7B. While it is a pan-ethnic disease, it is found more frequently in individuals of Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jewish descent, as well as individuals from the Canary Islands and from Sardinia. As the protein encoded by ATP7B plays a role in copper transport, pathogenic variants in this gene result in the toxic accumulation of copper in different tissues in the body, particularly the liver, nervous system and eyes. Liver disease includes cirrhosis caused by chronic hepatitis, leading to liver failure. Copper depositions in the nervous system can cause neurologic symptoms including changes in behavior, parkinsonism, ataxia and dystonia, and psychiatric symptoms including anxiety, depression and psychosis. While the presence of two null variants is often associated with a more severe disease phenotype, the severity of the disease can vary within families, thereby making it difficult to predict disease ...

Certain genetic diseases are more common in individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage (Jewish individuals of Eastern European ancestry) compared to the non-Jewish population. The majority of these conditions are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. This group of diseases includes Gaucher, Tay-Sachs, familial dysautonomia, Canavan, mucolipidosis IV, Niemann-Pick Type A and B, FANCC-related Fanconi anemia, and Bloom syndrome. While these conditions are observed outside of the Ashkenazi Jewish population, they occur at a lower frequency. It is estimated that an individual of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry has a 20% to 25% chance of being a carrier of 1 of these diseases.. Gaucher Disease:. Gaucher disease is a relatively rare lysosomal storage disorder resulting from a deficiency of acid beta-glucocerebrosidase. Mutations in the beta-glucocerebrosidase gene, GBA, cause the clinical manifestations of Gaucher disease. There are 3 major types of Gaucher disease: nonneuropathic (type 1), acute ...
Source: The Scientist. Most Ashkenazi Jews, traditionally believed to have descended from the ancient tribes of Israel, may in fact be maternally descended from prehistoric Europeans.. The majority of Ashkenazi Jews are descended from prehistoric European women, according to study published today (October 8) in Nature Communications. While the Jewish religion began in the Near East, and the Ashkenazi Jews were believed to have origins in the early indigenous tribes of this region, new evidence from mitochondrial DNA, which is passed on exclusively from mother to child, suggests that female ancestors of most modern Ashkenazi Jews converted to Judaism in the north Mediterranean around 2,000 years ago and later in west and central Europe..

Bernie Sanders however tried to prove he was a good Hymie (or a good Non-Hymie Hymie) by defending Jacksons hostility to the Jewish state.. Bernie Sanders brags about his endorsement from Congressman Keith Ellison despite his past support for the Nation of Islam and his appearance with Khalid Abdul Muhammad who had called Jews bloodsuckers and had said, If youre a Jew, Im against you. Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan, who calls Jews false Jews, praised Bernie Sanders as a real Jew, not a so-called Jew. The very thing that makes Bernie Sanders seem suspect to Jews makes him more appealing to anti-Semitic hate groups.. Sanders met with Al Sharpton despite his anti-Semitic remarks and the horror of the Crown Heights Pogrom in which an entire Jewish community was besieged by racist mobs chanting, Death to the Jews. The ...
One of every 37 Moroccan Jews carries one of the two mutations and based on the high carrier rate, PCCA2 is the most common severe genetic disease in Moroccan Jews discovered to date. Fifteen percent of Israels total population (1 million people) is of Moroccan ancestry. Nearly 100,000 Moroccan Jews also live in the United States, largely in New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston and Florida.
Gaucher disease is a rare inherited metabolic disorder characterized by anemia, mental and neurologic impairment, yellowish pigmentation of the skin, enlargement of the spleen, and bone deterioration resulting in pathological fractures.. Gaucher disease was initially described in 1882 by French physician Philippe Charles Ernest Gaucher. Normally, the body makes an enzyme called glucocerebrosidase that breaks down and recycles glucocerebroside - a normal part of the cell membrane. People who have Gaucher disease do not make enough glucocerbrosidase. This causes the specific lipid to build up in the liver, spleen, bone marrow and nervous system interfering with normal functioning.. Gaucher disease occurs in about 1 in 50,000 to 1 in 100,000 individuals in the general population. Type 1 is found more frequently among individuals who are of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. Type 1 Gaucher disease is present 1 in 500 to 1 in 1000 people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, and approximately 1 in 14 Ashkenazi Jews ...
Judaism is a religion and not an attribute definable by a DNA mutation, but we can give you hints about having Jewish ancestry by comparing your results against our database. Look on the Y-DNA - Ancestral Origins page to see whether or not the people you match have listed Jewish ancestry. Those in our Jewish database have a listing in the Comments column denoting Jewish ancestry. There are four situations when testing for Jewish ancestry. These situations are as follows:. ...

Background Pathogenic mutation in BRCA genes causes high cancer risk. Identifying the mutation carriers plays key roles in preventing BRCA mutation-related cancer. Population screening has demonstrated its power for comprehensive identification of the mutation carriers. However, it is only recommended for the Ashkenazi Jewish population with high prevalence of three founder mutations, but not for non-Ashkenazi Jewish populations as the cost-effectiveness could be too low due to their lower mutation prevalence and lack of founder mutation. Population screening would not benefit the majority of the human population for BRCA mutation-related cancer prevention. ...
A factual reconstruction for the origin of the Jews is a difficult and complex endeavor. It requires examining at least 3,000 years of ancient human history using documents in vast quantities and variety written in at least ten near Eastern languages. As archaeological discovery relies upon researchers and scholars from diverse disciplines, the goal is to interpret all of the factual data, focusing on the most consistent theory. The prehistory and ethnogenesis of the Jews are closely intertwined with archaeology, biology, and historical textual records, as well as religious literature and mythology. The ethnic stock to which Jews originally trace their ancestry was a confederation of Iron Age semitic-speaking tribes known as the Israelites that inhabited a part of Canaan during the tribal and monarchic periods.[70] Modern Jews are named after and also descended from the southern Israelite Kingdom of Judah.[71][72][73][74][75][76]. According to the Hebrew Bible narrative, Jewish ancestry is ...
Engagement agreement from 1908, Satanov Courtesy of Zohara and Yankale Dekel (Israel) Jews began to settle in Satanov in the 16th century. The Jews of Satanov suffered greatly during the Chmielnitsky uprising (1648-1649) and in 1651 the Cossacks burnt down the town and destroyed the Jewish community. In 1756 some followers of Yaakov Frank, who were accused of having religious orgies, were sentenced by the rabbinic court in Satanov to be publicly whipped. In 1897 the Jewish population of 2,848 comprised 65 percent of the total population of the town. Among the prominent Jewish figures connected to Satanov was David Vogel (1891-1944) - Hebrew poet, novelist, and diarist, who was arrested in France in 1944 and murdered in Auschwitz. In June 1915, during World War I, as a result of the antisemitic policy of the Russian military command, the Jews were expelled from Satanov. When they were allowed to return a year later, they found that their homes had been looted. Under the Soviets a Jewish rural ...
Purpose : Nonsyndromic retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is the most common inherited retinal disease, with a prevalence estimated at 1:5,000 in Europe and the USA and 1:2,230 in the Jewish population in Israel. The higher prevalence of RP in the Jewish population results mainly from intra-community marriages. The Ashkenazi Jewish (AJ) population was genetically isolated for many generations and therefore many founder mutations in this population are known to cause various autosomal recessive diseases. The purpose of the current study is to analyze the genetic and clinical findings in RP patients of AJ descent, aiming to identify genotype-phenotype correlations. Methods : 226 RP patients who reported AJ origin of both parents were included. Direct mutation screening by Sanger sequencing was performed to detect specific founder mutations. Ophthalmologic analysis includes visual acuity (VA) testing, visual field, electroretinography (ERG), and imaging. Results : The causative mutation was identified in ...
First big whopper which torpedoes Cohens credibility, because it is an easy fact to check: Half of Israels Jewish population is Arab Jews, not European Jews. How come there are Arab Jews? Because they were there before the Muslims came, or before Arabs became Muslim. In fact, they were the Jews before various historical events scattered and exiled some of them, one destination being Europe. (And yes, European Jews and Arab Jews are all Jews. The tracing of Ashkenazi Jewry from their origins in Judea are clear, their holy language, religious rituals, liturgy, and even genetic markers are the same, all dating back to where Israel is now, and they all regard each other as Jews and always have. So lets not even start with that particular nonsense.). The earliest verifiably Jewish artifacts in Israel date to 1500 years before it was conquered by Islam. Historical documents verify that Jews were in Persia 1000 years before it was conquered by Islam, in Babylonia (later Iraq) 1000 years before it ...

As archaeological discovery relies upon researchers and scholars from diverse disciplines, the goal is to interpret all of the factual data, focusing on the most consistent theory.

By Sarah Levine, BSN RN & Dr. Blima Marcus, DNP ANP-BC RN OCN. The regional measles outbreak has sparked major controversy within the Jewish community. Heavily-populated Jewish communities are seeing dozens of cases of the measles, and its only getting worse. Confirmed cases in Chicago occurred after a family traveled to Lakewood with a newly vaccinated child who didnt yet have time to develop immunity. This child contracted the measles in New Jersey, returned to Illinois, and exposed as many as 80 children in a daycare.. Some may point to a variety of reasons as to why the measles epidemic is so concentrated in Orthodox Jewish communities. This article will focus on the the biggest one: lack of education leaving people vulnerable to misinformed, devious, and outright propaganda efforts which attempt to paint vaccination as a dangerous and money-driven policy.. Anti-vaccination propaganda is led by uneducated and clearly biased Orthodox men and women in our communities. The Orthodox Jewish ...
Jewish immigration in the 20th century was fueled by the Holocaust, which destroyed most of the European Jewish community. The migration made the United States the home of the largest Jewish population in the world. - Jon Porter quotes from BrainyQuote.com
Normal BRCA genes work to repair cell damage, suppress tumor development and keep cells growing normally. They produce proteins that help repair damaged DNA. Everyone has BRCA1 and BRCA 2 genes. When these genes have abnormalities or mutations, there is a greater risk of developing certain types of cancer. These damaged genes can be inherited from one or both of these genes from biological parents. When certain BRCA mutations are inherited from both parents, there is an increased risk of developing a rare form of anemia, a syndrome associated with childhood solid tumors, and acute myeloid leukemia.. Both men and women can have these genetic mutations, and the gene mutations can be passed on by either the mother or father to their daughters or sons, or both.. Compared to the general population, people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent have a higher incidence of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations. The Norwegian, Dutch, and Icelandic population also have a higher prevalence.. When women have BRCA mutations, they ...
Glycogen storage disease, type IV is an autosomal recessive disorder that is caused by pathogenic variants in the gene GBE1. It is found in individuals of many different ethnicities, but is more prevalent in individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. The disease presentation can be quite variable. In the classic form, individuals appear well at birth but rapidly deteriorate due to progressive liver disease. Patients may also have cardiomyopathy and hypotonia. Development of liver cirrhosis necessitates a liver transplant by age of five years. The other subtypes vary in their age of onset and severity; several result in a more severe phenotype with death in early infancy, and others develop later in childhood and generally have a better prognosis. Pathogenic GBE1 variants can also cause a disease known as adult polyglucosan body disease, in which slowly progressive neurologic symptoms begin in middle age, including cognitive impairment, difficult walking, sensory loss, and difficulty controlling ...
A Jewish woman wears a No Vax sign on her backpack in a demonstration after officials banned children not vaccinated against measles from public spaces, West Nyack, New York, March 28, 2019.. Citing pockets of resistance that are impeding the countys efforts to stem a measles outbreak that has risen to 153 cases since October, Rockland officials declared a state of emergency in terms of which anyone under the age of 18 and not vaccinated against measles will be banned from public places.. Places covered under the ban include shopping centers, restaurants, schools and places of worship. Although Rocklands outbreak has so far affected only Orthodox Jewish community, Rockland County Executive Ed Day said theres no religious exemption and that the declaration of a state of emergency is meant to coincide with family gatherings during the upcoming holidays of Passover and Easter.. Noncompliance will carry penalties of six months in jail or a $500 fine, although Day said law enforcement would ...
I go by James, though many people still call me by my Muslim name. My father is Al Hajj, and my great-grandfather was also Al Hajj.* I am from the capital city of Kampala, Uganda. I grew up as a Muslim, and from as early as I can remember, I hated Jews. This hatred increased after an event that happened in my country in 1976, when Palestinians hijacked a French plane and forced it to land at the Entebbe Airport. In response, the Israelis organized an operation to rescue these people from Entebbe. In the process, soldiers of the Uganda army were killed, and the airport was partially destroyed.. When we heard the news that the Israelis had freed the hostages, pressure was put on us to hate the Jews even more. In the mosque that Friday, they tried to incite us to violence. We were inflamed with hatred. Some people were being trained locally to help the Palestinians fight the Jews, and I wished that I were old enough to be a part of that effort. Even though there were no Jehudis where I lived, I ...
Remembering them is important. But theres a reason the Holocaust is most associated with its Jewish victims, and not just because they were the majority killed, either. The truly sinister aspect of the Holocaust was that it was the outcome of a race war -- Hitler believed that the Ashkenazim were sent by the Sfardim (the so called Elders of Zion) to weaken the Aryan race by interbreeding with them and thereby destroying their purity.. See, in the context of 19th and early 20th century racialism, a pure race was considered infinitely more capable than a mongrel race. A natural order existed among the races, so the idea went, with Aryans naturally occupying the top position. But any mongrel race would not be able to compete with even the lowest pure race. Hitler and his contemporaries believed that the Sephardic Jews knew this, and were using matrilinearity to preserve their own racial purity while deliberately sending Ashkenazi Jews to breed with Aryans in order to dilute their genetic ...
In the wake of recent violent anti-Semitic hate crimes, Chicago Jews are training up - and praying their tactical knowledge never has to be used. CCL Shul Members is an organization that unites Jewish Concealed Carry License holders from across Chicagoland to promote the safe and lawful possession and use of firearms. Throughout our long history of persecution, Jews have rarely been given the right to defend ourselves from those who wish us harm, said Chaim Naiditch, the groups founder. We are blessed to live in a country where Jews have equal rights, and it is our mission to ensure that these rights are used responsibly to defend ourselves, our families, and our places of worship. Following the 2013 Firearm Concealed Carry Act in Illinois, many Jewish people privately applied for - and received - CCLs. While firearms training is a requirement in order to obtain a CCL, the organizations founders recognized a need for more advanced and situation-specific training to ensure that all those ...
I hate these three fools with a passion. I was hoping they would never get out. Why anyone would waste any sympathy on these three morons is beyond me. They are patently UNREACHABLE. If you spend all that time in Iran and dont kiss the USA dirt it shows that you ARE dirt.. I cant even stomach them. Just horrible. I guess I could get some satisfaction with knowing that the Moooooooslims will go after them FIRST but that still bothers me (not for THEM) because I know how the Mooooslims feel about Jews. All Jews. No matter if youre a dhimmi or NOT. Chomsky and all the other dhimmi so-called Jews are gonna get hacked before I get hacked by the death cult. I get it. Have no idea why they dont. Has to be the mental disorder.. And as for the Copts. It is sad BUT just as Scott has alluded to, DS has filled us in on what they are about. Because I know that about them (and know how the Mooooooslims think) they dont have a chance in hell. It is gonna get more barbaric. They should have fleed the ...
After Argentinas Jewish community complained of the governments whitewashing of Irans role in the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center, Argentinas president responded by … accusing the Jewish community of plotting against Argentina!. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner publicly attacked the head of Buenos Aires Jewish community, hinting he was in contact with a foreign espionage agency that knows of a new terror attack planned against Argentina.. Guillermo Borger, president of the AMIA Buenos Aires Jewish center, said the Argentina-Iran agreement to set up a committee to investigate the 1994 bombing of the center will allow a third bombing in Argentina. In 1992 the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires was bombed.. This pact is viewed by some people as a step forward. This may be a step to the precipice. It will allow a very unfortunate third attack, warned Borger.. The confrontation between Borger and Fernandez came to a head on Saturday as the president took to the ...

Some experts believe that if ovarian or breast cancer runs in the family, women should be tested for genetic abnormalities. If first- or second-degree relatives have such cancers, particularly among Ashkenazi Jewish families, women should discuss genetic testing for BRCA abnormalities with their doctors. Women with certain BRCA gene mutations may be offered the option of having both ovaries and tubes removed after they no longer wish to bear children, even when no cancer is present. This approach eliminates the risk of ovarian cancer and reduces the risk of breast cancer. These women should be evaluated by a gynecologist who specializes in cancer (gynecologic oncologist). More information is available from the National Cancer Institute Cancer Information Service (1-800-4-CANCER) and the Womens Cancer Network (WCN) web site (www.wcn.org ...

15. When both parents carry the defective Tay-Sachs gene, a child has a 25% chance of developing the disease. The child must receive two copies of the defective gene - one from each parent - in order to become sick. If only one parent passes the defective gene to the child, the child is called a carrier. He or she wont be sick, but will have the potential to pass the disease to his or her own children.. Anyone can be a carrier of Tay-Sachs, but the disease is most common among the Ashkenazi Jewish population. About 1 in every 27 members of the Ashkenazi Jewish population carries the Tay-Sachs gene.. Tay-Sachs has been classified into infantile, juvenile, and adult forms, depending on the symptoms and when they first appear. Most people with Tay-Sachs have the infantile form. In this form, the nerve damage usually begins while the baby is still in the womb. Symptoms usually appear when the child is 3 to 6 months old. The disease tends to get worse very quickly, and the child usually dies by age ...
Asher claims that what the Ethiopian Jewish community experienced was very similar to the exodus story in ancient times. He explained, In one day, we packed up all of our stuff and if you couldnt, you just left it. There was a lot of uncertainty. You could never know what happened from one day to the next. Asher claimed that Ethiopian Jewish families were separated from each other during their voyage. He explained, They went by non-Jewish guidance to Sudan during the night and hid during the day. There was a lot of robbery, thieves, rape, murder; every thing bad that you could imagine, along the way. As bad as the situation was in Ethiopia, Asher said that the situation got even worse when the Ethiopian Jews arrived in Sudan. In Sudan, members of the Ethiopian Jewish community were forced to live in horrific conditions in special camps. According to Asher, Ethiopian Jewish families with pregnant women and very small children were sleeping in tents in extremely hot weather. It was like ...
Jews, seem to lack something that other cultures around have. Im not sure exactly how to phrase it, but perhaps its a cultural expression to identify the group as one. Different cultures have a particular art or even architecture that identifies them as a whole. Mosques have a certain art form that is very unique to them. Asian countries have a certain art form as well, that is easily recognizable to identify their culture. The same can be said about dress. There are very specific trademark outfits. So for example, you have traditional Greek dancing with traditional Greek dress. Jews seem to lack this, and its quite understandable. Jews were dispersed and simply followed the dress, art, dance, and song of whatever culture they were in. Yemenite Jews and Litvak Jews seem very different. The present is no different. We simply dress like westerners. Ahhh, but you can say: what about halacha, hasnt that tied the Jews around the world together? Well, yes. It has. Jews keep halacha. We pray, ...
was born in New York City in May, 1939, six months after Kristalnacht, Germanys massive pogrom against the Jews, and six months before the SS issued and executed the first orders singling out Polish Jewry for death. Of the more than six million Jews murdered by Europe in the years 1939- 45, more than one million were children. Had the parents or grandparents of Jews surviving today not fled Europe before the war; had Germany won that war it came so close to winning; had Hitlers idol and American industrialist Henry Ford decided to run, and won his anti-Semitic populist campaign for president of the United States would even a single Jew be alive in the world today? For David Turner Auschwitz is ever present. He sees himself not as just another American artist who matured in the shadow of The New York School; nor just an artist who happens to have been born a Jew. David sees himself, as he views every Jew alive in the wake of the Holocaust a child of Shoah. It is this awareness that defines his ...

Interfaith families, especially, want a haggadah that will be welcoming to the `stranger in their midst - the strangers who are now their son-in-law, daughter-in-law, maybe their grandchildren, Ochs said.. Some observant Jews still frown upon alternative and do-it-yourself haggadahs, but Ochs said a seder remains legitimate as long as it communicates the Passover story and retains the core traditional elements: asking the four questions, drinking the four cups of wine, eating the symbolic foods, welcoming the Prophet Elijah and sharing the afikoman, a blessed piece of matzo.. Even the traditional Passover observance has evolved over time, Ochs added, noting that Jews no longer sacrifice a lamb at the Temple as their ancestors did. Whats more, Judaisms Ashkenazi and Sephardic branches developed different dietary restrictions and seder staples for the weeklong observance.. ...
Introduction. The Holocaust AO1: a What does the word Holocaust mean and why do some Jews prefer to use the term Shoah? The word Holocaust means burnt offering or sacrifice. This Jewish genocide was called this, mainly because the Nazis killed the majority of Jewish people by burning them. The word Shoah means whirlwind. This was the best way the Jews could explain the horrific event. AO1:b Describe what happened to the Jews of Europe in the 1930s and 40s. Before the Nazis came to power, life for the Jews of Europe was just like any other. They worked, went to school, got married, played sport, the wealthy went on holidays and lived normal lives. It werent until the Nazis came to power that all of this changed. They had experienced discrimination in previous generations, like in the middle Ages. Church Leaders blamed Jews for the death of Christ. So they were known as evil. Jewish people would experience oppression, expulsion and massacre. This went on in to the 19th century. ...
Israels eminently successful cover of virtue and humanitarianism to conceal the institutionalized racism of its society is probably unsurpassed anywhere. The term institutionalized racism is not being used here to refer to prejudice of one Jewish population against another, which occurs in Israel as it does in other countries. These prejudices within the Jewish community will change with changing political, economic and social climates. The racism that the United Nations resolution refers to is discrimination against non-Jewish citizens that is perpetuated in the fundamental laws of the state.. The crucial question for determining the validity of the United Nations resolution is whether the Arabs in Israel are in fact legally discriminated against because they are not Jews. The standard Zionist response is that all persons, whatever their religion, may acquire Israeli citizenship and that both Arab and Jewish Israeli citizens have equal rights. It is true that Arabs in Israel may become ...
