Louisa Shafia Explains the Jewish and Persian Influences in Her Gondi Recipe

Photo: Bobby Doherty/New York Magazine Louisa Shafia grew up eating her Ashkenazi Jewish mothers matzo-ball soup, and though her father was born near Tehran, she only came by the Iranian version recently, when researching that countrys cuisine for her cookbook The New Persian Kitchen. I wanted to include Jewish recipes, says Shafia, but I could only find three. One of them was for gondi, the matzo-less matzo-ball soup that Shafia will serve at City Grits Persian Passover seder. When testing the recipe, Shafia found the chicken-and-chickpea-flour dumplings fluffy and very lightthe exotically spiced antithesis of too many matzo balls gone wrong. 1. The dumplings can be made from veal, lamb, and turkey, but Shafia uses ground chicken, which she combines with chickpea flour and seasons with cardamom and turmeric. 2. Fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley, and dill are essential to Iranian cuisine. 3. Shafia says the soup, which contains both carrots and chickpeas, brought together two disparate parts of my identity, being Jewish and being Persian. 4. Fresh lemon juice and intensely bittersweet dried limes lend the broth a distinctly Persian tart and sour flavor.

Documentary: Hitlers wife, Eva Braun, may have had Jewish ancestry

Eva Braun and Adolf Hitler in 1942. Photo from German Federal Archive Eva Braun, the wife of Adolf Hitler, may have had Jewish ancestry, according to a new British documentary. Dead Famous DNA, which is scheduled to air Wednesday on Britains Channel 4, reported that hair samples from a brush believed to have been used by Braun were tested and show that a DNA sequence found in the sample is strongly associated with Ashkenazi Jews. The brush was found at Hitlers mountain retreat in Bavaria. She was raised a Catholic. In the 19th century, many Ashkenazi Jews in Germany converted to Catholicism, so Braun was unlikely to have known her ancestry. This is a thought-provoking outcome I never dreamt that I would find such a potentially extraordinary and profound result, said program host Mark Evans. Braun and Hitler were married in the hours before they committed suicide together in a bunker in Berlin at the end of World War II. Braun, who was 23 years younger than Hitler, had been his longtime lover. We welcome your feedback. Your information will not be shared or sold without your consent. Get all the details.

Hitler's wife Eva Braun may have been Jewish

World Thought-provoking outcome: Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s wife Eva Braun may have been of Jewish descent according to DNA analysis carried out for a British television documentary. The anti-Semitic German leader responsible for the Holocaust married his long-term lover Braun shortly before they committed suicide in a Berlin bunker in 1945. But the program to be screened by Britain’s independent Channel 4 on Wednesday says hair samples show Braun may have had Jewish ancestry herself. Hair samples indicate possible Jewish ancestry: Eva Braun. Scientists commissioned by the Dead Famous DNA program tested hair said to have come from a brush used by Braun and found at Hitler’s mountain retreat. Advertisement In DNA from the hair, they found a sequence passed down through the maternal line – haplogroup N1b1 – which was “strongly associated” with Ashkenazi Jews. Ashkenazi Jews dispersed into central and eastern Europe in the early Middle Ages, and some converted to Catholicism in Germany in the 19th century.

DNA suggests Hitler may have married a Jew

This undated file picture shows the Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun.AP Photo/US Army Signal Corps from Eva Braun’s album, File A British documentary airing next week makes an astonishing claim: Hitler inadvertently married a Jew in one of his last acts before suicide, reports the Telegraph. The Channel 4 show, Dead Famous DNA, maintains that hair from Eva Braun’s brush suggests she had Jewish ancestry on her mother’s side. One caveat is that producers were unable to get DNA swabs from Braun’s living relatives to confirm that the hair belongs to her, reports the Independent. But the circumstantial evidence is strong: It comes from a hairbrush taken from her apartment by a US Army officer, and it was inside a cosmetics case monogrammed with her initials. In analyzing the hair, researchers found a DNA sequence associated with Ashkenazi Jews that is passed from mother to daughter. The Times of Israel explains that many Ashkenazi Jews converted to Catholicism in Germany during the 19th century. Braun attended Catholic school, and Hitler had her background carefully vetted before pursuing a relationship with the woman 23 years his junior, notes the Independent. The show suggests that neither she nor Hitler would have known about her Jewish roots. They were married in Hitler’s bunker on April 29, 1945, and committed suicide ahead of advancing Soviet troops the next day.

Hitler may have 'unwittingly married a Jew'

Paul Baer, a German-born Jew whose mother and sisters were taken to concentration camps, kept a selection of items from Brauns apartment, including several Nazi ceremonial daggers, a human skull and a cosmetics case with the initials E.B. His son Alan has now donated the hair for investigation, in the hopes of contributing to historical and scientific understanding. A spokesman for the television programme said the hair collected from the brush came from someone who could have had Jewish ancestry. He added the unexpected and extraordinary discovery showed a specific sequence within mitochondrial DNA belonging to haplogroup N1b1, which is strongly associated with Ashkenazi Jews. Despite Hitler conducting research into Brauns background, it is unlikely any link with Judaism would have been found; not least because many Ashkenazi Jews in Germany are known to have converted to Catholicism. Programme-makers said they had attempted to obtain DNA evidence from two of Brauns surviving descendents, to confirm the hair on the brush did belong to her, but have not been successful. This is a thought-provoking outcome – I never dreamt that I would find such a potentially extraordinary and profound result, says Mark Evans, the programmes presenter. Racism and fascism ideas that one racial group is superior to another made a mockery of by studying dead famous DNA.

DNA Evidence Suggests Hitler May Have Married Woman of Jewish Descent

A documentary series on Britains Channel 4 reveals that Adolf Hitlers wife, Eva Braun, had Jewish ancestry, a conclusion drawn from DNA samples the show Dead Famous DNA believes to be Brauns. They tested hair samples from a brush that was apparently used by Braun, and the DNA sample they examined revealed a striking similarity to a sequence strongly associated with Ashkenazi Jews. However, there is a twist. Although programme-makers said the provenance of the hair was strong, the only way to prove beyond doubt that it was from Braun would have been to take a DNA swab from one of her two surviving female descendants, but both refused when approached, so there is still an element of mystery. So only time and further DNA analysis will tell, then Channel 4 came under fire last week for paying a Holocaust denier a sizable amount of money for a lock of the Fhrers own hair for the show.

Was Adolf Hitler's lover Eva Braun from a Jewish family?

Scientists made the discovery using hair from a brush that belonged to her DNA included particular sequence strongly associated with Jewish people Many Jews in Germany converted to Catholicism before 19th Century Tests were made for C4 show Dead Famous DNA, to be shown next week Published: 17:56 EST, 4 April 2014 | Updated: 17:59 EST, 4 April 2014 Couple: Adolf Hitler with Eva Braun, who may have been descended from a Jewish family When they committed suicide in his bunker at the end of the Second World War, Eva Braun had been Adolf Hitlers mistress for more than 12 years and his wife for a mere 40 hours. It seems, however, that despite their time together, she may have kept a crucial family secret from the Fuhrer. For the man who exterminated millions of Jews in the war may have been in love with a woman with Jewish ancestry. DNA analysis of hair found on a brush that belonged to her seems to show a link through her maternal line, it emerged yesterday. Hitler kept Miss Braun, who was 23 years his junior and a teenager when she first met him, largely hidden away at his Alpine residence, the Berghof. Scientists tested hair samples which are said to have come from a hairbrush used by Braun and discovered at Hitlers mountain retreat. They found a particular sequence within the DNA, which had been passed down the maternal line the haplogroup N1b1 which it is claimed is strongly associated with Ashkenazi Jews, who make up around 80 per cent of the global Jewish population.

Is there a link between Parkinsons and Ashkenazi Jews?

Its no secret that harmful mutations to the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which increase a womans chances of getting breast cancer, are more common among those of Ashkenazic descent. Now researchers are investigating another gene mutation with links to Jews descending from Eastern Europe, this time related to Parkinsons disease. A major international study currently is enrolling participants of Ashkenazic heritage and other risk factors, with local testing taking place at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Its focus: the LRRK2 gene, a certain mutation of which is much more common in Ashkenazic Jews and a target of interest in drug development. Its all part of a landmark effort that the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research began in 2010, called the Parkinsons Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI). The $60 million international program aims to identify biomarkers in individuals with Parkinsons, which has no cure and is characterized by tremors, impaired balance and rigidity. In the United States, about 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with the disease each year, according to the Parkinsons Disease Foundation. Efforts to identify therapies and medications have been slow to come, and complicating matters is the fact that there are no biomarkers measurable substances, processes or characteristics of the body (think of the relationship between cholesterol and heart disease) which are critical in testing new therapies and treatments. Biomarkers give researchers a quick and more effective way to evaluate if a new therapy or drug is working. With several promising Parkinsons drugs currently in the pre-clinical phase, our concern and rationale was that if a therapeutic doesnt work, we should know that because the therapy isnt accomplishing its goals. We dont want the outcomes to be unknown because we cant measure it, said Sohini Chowdhury, senior vice president of research partnerships for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The current method to gauge the effectiveness of Parkinsons treatments involves a physician measuring a persons motions over a specified amount of time, which Chowdhury called highly inaccurate. You need a measure that gives you a sense of accuracy and confidence, she said. The first wave of PPMI studied individuals with Parkinsons against a control group. That research ended in 2013, when the study expanded to groups with non-genetic risk factors, such as REM sleep disorders, and, more recently, to individuals with genetic risk factors, including LRRK2. Changes in LRRK2 are believed to be responsible for 15 to 20 percent of Parkinsons disease cases in Ashkenazic Jews, a much greater percentage than in the general population according to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Dr. Douglas Galasko of the UCSD School of Medicine said he and his team are enrolling Ashkenazic Jews who have a family member with Parkinsons and who are willing to be tested to some degree. The more intensive testing involves spinal taps, brain imaging and more, and they hope to find 50 to 60 individuals worldwide to undergo that level of testing (two or three in Southern California).

Ashkenazi: Definition from Answers.com

For other meanings see Ashkenaz (disambiguation). Ashkenazi Jews ( Y’hude Ashk’naz in Biblical Hebrew; Y’hudey Ashknoz in Ashkenazi Hebrew) Total population 8[1]11.2[2] million Regions with significant populations Languages Historical: Yiddish Modern: Local languages, primarily: English, Hebrew, Russian primarily Judaism, Agnosticism, Atheism Other Levantines,[5][6][7][8]Samaritans,[7]Assyrians,[7][8]Arabs, Sephardi Jews, Mizrahi Jews etc. Ashkenazi Jews, also known as Ashkenazic Jews or Ashkenazim (Hebrew: , Ashkenazi Hebrew pronunciation: [aknazim], singular: [aknazi], Modern Hebrew: [akenazim], [akenazi]; also Y’hudey Ashkenaz, “The Jews of Ashkenaz”), are an ethnoreligious group who trace their origins to the indigenous Hebrew speaking peoples of Canaan in the Middle East, and settled along the Rhine in Germany from Alsace in the south to the Rhineland in the north, probably during the early Middle Ages.[9] The name Ashkenazi derives from the biblical figure of Ashkenaz, the first son of Gomer, and a Japhetic patriarch in the Table of Nations (Genesis 10). In the rabbinic literature, the kingdom of Ashkenaz was first associated with the Scythian region, then later with the Slavic territories,[10] and, from the 11th century onwards, with northern Europe and Germany.[11] The Jews living in these regions associated with Ashkenaz’s kingdom thus came to call themselves the Ashkenazi.[11] Later, Jews from Western and Central Europe also came to be called Ashkenazi because the main centers of Jewish learning were located in Germany. Many Ashkenazi Jews later migrated, largely eastward, forming communities in non German-speaking areas, including Bohemia, Hungary, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and elsewhere between the 11th and 19th centuries. With them, they took and diversified Yiddish, a High German language written using the Hebrew alphabet. It had developed in medieval times as the lingua franca among Ashkenazi Jews. The Jewish communities of three cities along the Rhine: Speyer, Worms and Mainz, created the SHUM league (SHUM after the first Hebrew letters of Shpira, Vermayza, and Magentza). The ShUM-cities are considered the cradle of the distinct Ashkenazi culture and liturgy. Although in the 11th century, they composed only three percent of the world’s Jewish population, at their peak in 1931, Ashkenazi Jews accounted for 92 percent of the world’s Jews. Today, they make up approximately 80 percent of Jews worldwide.[12] Most Jewish communities with extended histories in Europe are Ashkenazim, with the exception of those associated with the Mediterranean region. The majority of the Jews who migrated from Europe to other continents in the past two centuries are Ashkenazim, Eastern Ashkenazim in particular. The exact definition of Jewishness is not universally agreed uponneither by religious scholars (especially across different denominations); nor in the context of politics (as applied to those who wish to make Aliyah); nor even in the conventional, everyday sense where “Jewishness” may be loosely understood by the casual observer as encompassing both religious and secular Jews, or religious Jews alone. This makes it especially difficult to define who is an Ashkenazi Jew. The people have been defined differently from religious, cultural, or ethnic perspectives. Since the overwhelming majority of Ashkenazi Jews no longer live in Eastern Europe, the isolation that once favored a distinct religious tradition and culture has vanished. (The centers of Judaism today are in Israel and in the United States of America, and in both countries, Ashkenazi Jews live along with other Jews.) Furthermore, the word Ashkenazi is being used in non-traditional ways, especially in Israel. By conservative and orthodox philosophies, a person can be considered a Jew only if his or her mother was Jewish (meaning, more specifically, either matrilineal descent from a female believed to be present at Mt. Sinai when the ten commandments were given, or else descent from a female who was converted to Judaism before the birth of her children), or if he or she has personally converted to Judaism. This means that a person can be Ashkenazi but not considered a Jew by some of those within the Jewish communities, making the term “Ashkenazi” more applicable as broad ethnicity which evolved from the practice of Judaism in Europe.[citation needed]

Israel Meir Kin is a threat to all Jewish women

A little over a thousand years ago, Rabbenu Gershom of Mainz, the leading scholar of Ashkenazi Jewry, enacted bold legal measures to protect Jewish women from abuse. Last week a fellow named Israel Meir Kin poked his finger in Rabbenu Gershoms eye, and now every Jewish woman is at risk. In his day, Rabbenu Gershom began to notice a disturbing and outrageous trend. Husbands, who found that they now fancied another woman, were taking advantage of the Biblical law allowing them to divorce their wives unilaterally and virtually without cause. And with the stroke of a pen, and the cold delivery of a divorce document, they were shattering the lives of their wives and families. Rabbenu Gershom strode into the breach and proclaimed a ban of excommunication against any man who divorced his wife without her consent. And to insure these husbands who lusted after another woman wouldnt simply marry their new love without divorcing their first wives, he placed the same ban of excommunication on any man who married more than one wife, effectively ending the practice of polygamy in Ashkenaz. Rabbenu Gershom was determined that Jewish women would no longer be subject to this kind of abuse at the hands of their husbands. In our day, Israel Meir Kin has undone Rabbenu Gershoms work. This past Thursday, as about 30 of us stood in protest, he blatantly violated Rabbenu Gershoms ban, by marrying a second woman without divorcing his wife. As if it were not enough that for the past 9 years he has spitefully been refusing to grant a Jewish divorce to his wife Lonna (allegedly unless she were to pay him hundreds of thousands of dollars), he has now completed his journey of shame by toppling the age-old ban on polygamy. (See the articles in this past Saturdays New York Times, and the Jewish Journal. Make no mistake. Israel Meir Kins actions are not merely outrageous and despicable. His actions threaten all of our daughters and all of our sisters. I can guarantee you that at this very moment there are men who are watching, waiting to see whether Israel Meir Kin gets away with this. And if he does, there will be more Israel Meir Kins. And every single married Jewish woman will be shorn of the protection Rabbenu Gershom had afforded women for the past millennium. If you know Israel Meir Kin, a physicians assistant now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada, or if you know someone who knows him, you must act now. Bring whatever legal form of social or economic pressure to bear on him that you can. This is a moment that has the potential to wreak havoc and misery for generations to come.

'Your Jewish genes and cancer' symposium aims to raise awareness about increased risks

A free symposium, open to the public, will shed light on the increased incidence of and susceptibility to breast, ovarian and other cancers for those of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. “Your Jewish Genes and Cancer” is scheduled for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at Mittleman Jewish Community Center, 6651 S.W. Capitol Highway. One in 40 Ashkenazi Jews those of central and eastern European descent carry a BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutation linked to cancer rates higher than in the general population. According to the National Cancer Institute, mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA 2 increase the risk of several cancers in addition to breast and ovarian cancer. BRCA1 mutations may increase a woman’s risk of developing fallopian tube cancer and peritoneal cancer. Men with BRCA2 mutations, and to a lesser extent BRCA1 mutations, are also at increased risk of breast cancer. Men with the mutations also have a higher risk of prostate cancer. Among both genders, those with the mutation may be at increased risk of pancreatic cancer. April’s event will include information about genetics, testing, options and personal stories from community memebers. “Your Jewish Genes and Cancer” is a collaborative effort of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland, Susan G. Komen, the Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer Foundation and Mittleman Jewish Community Center. Register online. Those who attend are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Oregon Food Bank. — Katy Muldoon

You Got the Luck of the Irish: Youre a Redhead!

Redheads, as they say, wear the map of Ireland all over their faces. Sorry, ginger-haired English Prince Harry. And the statistics bear that stereotype out. Ireland has the highest per capita percentage of redheads in the world — anywhere from 10 to 30 percent, according to Eupedia, a website that explores European genetics and ancestry. They are almost equally prevalent in Scotland and other pockets of Celtic pride. A slightly lower percentage hail from Cornwall in England and western parts of Switzerland. Red hair is associated with the gene MC1R, a recessive and somewhat rare gene that occurs in only about 2 percent of the world’s population, according to the National Institutes of Health. That means both parents must carry a copy of the gene to produce a red-haired child and often the trait skips generations. Rarest of all are redheads with blue eyes. The majority have brown eyes or hazel or green shades. Brian Braiker, executive editor of Digiday, who answered an ABCNews.com call for redheads with, “Better red than dead,” said he is “always” mistaken for an Irishman. Ethnically, he is nearly all Ashkenazi Jew, except for a maternal grandmother who is Norwegian. Not surprising. Why do you think they called the plundering Scandinavian Erik the Red? Genetic genealogy has revealed a high percentage of people from southwest Norway coincide with a paternal lineage known as haplogroup Rib-L21, including its subclade, Rib-M222, which is typical of northern Ireland. Genealogists speculate that may be because the Vikings took Celtic slaves from Ireland to that part of Norway. Braiker, 6-foot, 3-inches tall, with his brown eyes and full-fledged auburn beard, said he didn’t have an easy time of it growing up a redhead. His coloring was nothing like his dark-haired father and light-haired mother. “I endured jokes, ‘Are you the milkman’s son?’ and ‘Were you adopted,’” Braiker, 39, told ABCNews.com.

Now, at Bar Bolonat, her most ambitious restaurant yet, Admony plans to introduce New Yorkers to her personal take on modern Israeli cuisine. On the menu and plate, this translates into a fusion of the Sephardic foods of her family (her father is Yemenite, her mother Iranian) with the Ashkenazi staples of her childhood friends and neighbors near Tel Aviv, melded with the chef’s own multicultural experience and appetite (she happens to be a Thai-food fanatic). So when the corner spot opens opposite Abingdon Square Park later this month, you can expect to find Admony’s take on the sesame-seeded “Jerusalem bagels” sold by Palestinian vendors at the Old City’s Western Wall; cauliflower coated in crushed Bissli, a corkscrew-shaped, “Grill”-flavored Israeli wheat snack; and shrimp in Yemenite curry, an Admony invention of preserved lemon, coconut milk, and the ubiquitous spicy condiment zhrug. Admony cooks her turkey shawarma not on a spit but the way her mother does it, searing the dark leg meat, slicing it thin, and sauteing it with lots of onions. Then she dispenses with family tradition to serve it taco style in cumin-and-nigella-seed tortillas she has custom made for her in an East Williamsburg tortilleria. Although her mint-tea gelato is a newfangled idea, its presentation isn’t. Admony serves it in a Moroccan glass on “an ugly tray, the kind of thing every mom used to have.” Like her own gastronomic legacy, it’s something she’s come to appreciate with age. 611 Hudson St., at 12th St.; 212-390-1545

Fair Use Disclaimer

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Under the 'fair use' rule of copyright law, an author may make limited use of another author's work without asking permission. Fair use is based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials for purposes of commentary and criticism. The fair use privilege is perhaps the most significant limitation on a copyright owner's exclusive rights.

Fair use as described at 17 U.S.C. Section 107:

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
  • (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work."
