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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. Jews aso own/control Hollywood. Ben Stein,a jew writer,humorist,actor wrote an article and listed the top 20 or more jobs in Hollywood. All of these jobs were held by jews.. The Rothchild dynasty began in ...
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. ...
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. Her hair and teeth had fallen out, and her pulse was a dangerously low 28, less than half a normal reading. Everything sounded like a shriek or a whisper to ...
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, ...

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

Very few Bangladeshis, even among the educated class, have actually met a Jew, since theyre not allowed to visit Israel and since virtually no Jews live among them.. Even so, Ali, whos visited the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, said he has deep sympathy for the six million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis - a genocide he compares to the three million Bangladeshis slaughtered by Pakistan during the 1971 war of independence.. "Im very liberal, and I believe the Jews have been wronged, mostly by Europe, throughout history," said the historian. "But at the same time, I dont believe that gives them the right to wrong the Palestinians today.". That same reasoning largely explains why Bangladesh - 90 percent of whose people are Muslim - still has no diplomatic relations with Israel.. "In 1971, Israel had offered to help us in the war of liberation, but that didnt materialize because our government at the time wanted to play it cautious. So they did not respond to the Israeli ...
Rob Jacobson, a former video editor who worked for the site for 13 years, alleges his co-workers and managers called him "The Jewish Individual" and "The Resident Jew," and that Jones regularly humiliated and belittled him. As the Mail reports, "The abuse got so bad that one member of staff photo shopped Jacobsons face on to the image of an Orthodox Jew under the words THE JEWISH INDIVIDUAL DEMANDS YOUR HOT TOPICS and printed it out for all to see." Jacobson, who was eventually fired, is planning to sue Jones for discrimination, harassment, and unfair dismissal, in addition to his EEOC complaint.. Meanwhile, Ashley Beckford, a former production assistant for InfoWarss parent company, Free Speech Systems, alleges Jones "often spent his time shirtless, and endlessly leering…at female employees and guests," which created a "disgusting, hostile environment" that openly encouraged his staff to make inappropriate comments towards women. According to the EEOC statement from Beckford, who is ...

What a pity that Orthodox Jews have not been active in the Right to Life movement, and have left Christians to speak for us. Yes, we sympathize with them and vote for conservative candidates, and once in a while the Agudah may file an amicus brief. But we have been mainly silent, and as a result, very few people-very few Jews, even-know what the Jewish position actually IS.. In todays NY Times we have been lumped together with Christians for the umpteenth time, as if there really were one monolithic "Judeo-Christian" view of when life begins. The NY Times thinks that Orthodox Jews share the Catholic view-that life begins at the moment an egg is fertilized by a sperm. The Times says, "In the Judeo-Christian tradition, it is wrong to destroy embryos in the course of research." And how should they know that there is any difference between the Christian and Jewish views, if we are silent?. If we had been more active and more vocal, we might have had more influence within the pro-life movement, and ...

The statement said that Piccardos declaration "is an inacceptable declaration, not only for the Milan Jewish community but also for all the citizenry of Milan" which has been a sister city of Tel Aviv since 1997.. The Milan Jewish communitys relations "with all the other Islamic associations in the city will continue with the usual serenity," the statement said. It reiterated that the Milan Jewish community "has always been and always will be close to the legitimate requests of the Milanese residents of Islamic faith regarding the construction of places of worship in Milan. We consider important the enlargement of the perimeter of religious freedoms, which are essential for the strengthening of Italian democracy.".

Congregation of African-American Jews in Philadelphia reaches out to broader Jewish community in bid to persuade Jews to break through racial divisions
In this study, 266 subjects from 194 HPC families were screened for germline mutations in the BRCA2 gene by sequencing the coding regions, intron-exon boundaries, and suspected regulatory elements of this gene, with the goal of estimating the frequency and contribution of BRCA2 mutations and variants to HPC susceptibility. HPC families were selected to maximize the possibility of finding BRCA2 disease-associated mutations and included families with multiple breast cancers or ovarian cancer, with a pancreatic cancer case, with Jewish heritage, or HPC families with men diagnosed at earlier ages (,60 years). However, no disease-associated BRCA2 mutations were found.. Two other studies of BRCA2 and HPC have reported similar findings to ours (18, 19). In a small study of 18 Ashkenazi Jewish families, each having at least three first-degree relatives affected with prostate cancer, Wilkens et al. (18) reported no BRCA2 mutations among affected men; however, one unaffected man, aged 44 years, was ...

Introduction: This year marks the 35th anniversary of two noteworthy papers-one in this journal and the other in the American Journal of Human Genetics-posing the same famous question: are the different Jewish populations from around Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa more genetically similar to each other, or are they more similar to the local non--‐Jewish populations in the regions where they were historically located? Both studies gathered blood--‐group and protein variation data from a variety of Jewish and non--‐Jewish populations, compiling significant
