Alternate title: Ashkenazim Ashkenazi,plural Ashkenazim, from Hebrew Ashkenaz (Germany), member of the Jews who lived in the Rhineland valley and in neighbouring France before their migration eastward to Slavic lands (e.g., Poland, Lithuania, Russia) after the Crusades (11th13th century) and their descendants. After the 17th-century persecutions in eastern Europe, large numbers of these Jews resettled in western Europe, where they assimilated, as they had done in eastern Europe, with other Jewish communities. In time, all Jews who had adopted the German rite synagogue ritual were referred to as Ashkenazim to distinguish them from Sephardic (Spanish rite) Jews. Ashkenazim differ from Sephardim in their pronunciation of Hebrew, in cultural traditions, in synagogue cantillation (chanting), in their widespread use of Yiddish (until the 20th century), and especially in synagogue liturgy. Today Ashkenazim constitute more than 80 percent of all the Jews in the world, vastly outnumbering Sephardic Jews. In the late 20th century, Ashkenazic Jews numbered more than 11 million. In Israel the numbers of Ashkenazim and Sephardim are roughly equal, and the chief rabbinate has both an Ashkenazic and a Sephardic chief rabbi on equal footing. All Reform and Conservative Jewish congregations belong to the Ashkenazic tradition. Compare Sephardi.
A parents worst fear is that their children will be abducted, violated and murdered. It keeps them awake at night, gnaws on the fringes of their conscience and can alter the way they look at life and the world sometimes irreparably. Big Bad Wolves banks on this fear and turns it into a story so dark and brutal that the Brothers Grimm are no doubt seething with jealousy. Directed by Israels Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, Big Bad Wolves recounts the tale of a father seeking vengeance in the worst imaginable way after his 10-year-old daughter becomes the last victim in a series of child murders. The murderer not only rapes and kills, he also decapitates the girls, often while they are still alive. Does that justify the endless and horrendous torture of the man suspected of these heinous crimes? For the father, Gidi (Tzahi Grad), the moral question is not enough to give him pause as he breaks the fingers of his suspect a mild-mannered religious teacher named Dror (Rotem Keinan) one by one. First Gidi drags him inside the basement of his house then begins to work him over with a hammer and other spiked or blunt instruments that are on hand. His accomplice in the matter is police detective Miki (Lior Ashkenazi), currently on suspension because he nabbed Dror without concrete evidence. But both are convinced Dror is guilty as hell. In the privacy of the basement and with plenty of weapons hanging from the walls, Miki and Gidi are free to do as they please, except when Gidi has to take a phone call from his mother and he pulls out the dutiful Jewish son routine. The film is full of pockets of humor such as this, but you get the feeling theyre there solely for the benefit of Gidi and Miki. Torture and abuse can get boring after a while and besides, theyre trying not to think of the teensy tiny possibility that Dror may actually be innocent. Dror certainly claims he is, over and over again. Big Bad Wolves was Quentin Tarantinos favorite film of 2013, and that alone merits a warning label. Nothing in here is supposed to make you feel glad or even vindicated; each atrocious brutality is capped by another atrocity thats unbearable to witness. Unlike Tarantino, though, Keshales and Papushado are restrained about depicting outright gore. The camera always averts its gaze at the crucial moment when you just cant take it anymore. This is one movie where a vivid imagination may do a lot of damage but, on the other hand, Keshales and Papushado operate on the assumption that when it comes to horror, less is definitely more. In short, theres no escaping the hell unfolding here, even though it is tempered with jokes, wisecracks and cozy domestic scenes, such as one where Gidi bakes a cake laced with poison. Its not uncommon for a victim to turn into a vigilante but, in this case, Miki and Gidi turn into terrorists. Maniacs are afraid of maniacs, says Gidi. Aint it the truth.
We first told you about Kuper back in January of 2013. Over the weekend his mother Carisa Holewinksi confirmed via Kuper’s Facebook page that the toddler had passed away. Tay-Sahs is a rare disease that affects the nervous and spinal systems of those of French-Canadian and Ashkenazi Jew and Dutch Amish backgrounds. The disease left Kuper unable to walk or communicate and can only be passed on when both parents are carriers. A fund has been setup to cover the funeral costs.

Called Him an ‘Enemy of Al-Aksa’ GETTY IMAGES Published November 17, 2014. Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick said the Palestinian gunman who shot him apologized before firing. He told me, Im very sorry, you are the enemy of Al-Aksa, Glick told Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau, who was visiting Glick in his hospital room on Monday, Israeli media reported. The gunman was referring to the mosque on the Temple Mount. Glick has been hospitalized at Shaarey Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem since the Oct. 29 attack outside a conference center in the Israeli capital. He began breathing on his own without a respirator nearly a week ago. The assailant shot Glick at close range in the chest and abdomen before fleeing on a motorcycle. Hours later the alleged assailant, a member of Islamic Jihad who worked in the centers kitchen, was killed in a shootout outside his eastern Jerusalem home. Immediately before he was shot, Glick had spoken at the center on the Jewish right to pray on the Temple Mount. I am praying with you that God willing, both of us will stand there in order to give thanks, Lau said of the Temple Mount, referring to the messianic age. Israels Chief Rabbinate has ruled that Jews should not visit the site because of its holiness.

Amy Norton HealthDay Reporter Posted: Friday, November 7, 2014, 2:00 AM (HealthDay News) — Even among people who live well into their 90s, those with a particular gene variant may survive the longest, a new study finds. The variant is in a gene known as CETP, and researchers have known for more than a decade that people who carry it have a better shot at an exceptionally long life — past 95 or even 100. CETP is involved in cholesterol metabolism, and the longevity-linked variant raises blood levels of HDL cholesterol (the “good” kind) and promotes larger-than-normal HDL particles, researchers say. The new findings show that even when you look at people who’ve already lived beyond age 95, those with the “favorable” CETP variant survive longer, said Dr. Sofiya Milman, an assistant professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. Milman was scheduled to present the findings Thursday at the annual meeting of the Gerontological Society of America in Washington, D.C. Data and conclusions presented at meetings are usually considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal. The results build on work that began at Einstein in the late 1990s. Researchers there have been studying centenarians in and around New York City, all of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. They’ve found that people in this long-lived group often carry the CETP variant, and have very high HDL levels. “They don’t only live longer, they live healthier, too,” Milman said. Research has linked the CETP variant to lower-than-average rates of heart disease and stroke, as well as sharper mental function in old age, Milman noted. But she said the gene could have other, yet unknown roles in aging, too.

Ashkenazi-JEW vs Saudi-Arab Ashkenazi-JEW vs Saudi-Arab. By: HEaRealNowhereMan .
With the use of leg braces and a cane he eventually taught himself to walk short distances. Salks vaccine was derived from dead poliovirus, which was injected into the patient to prompt a response in the body that would create immunity from the disease without causing dangerous symptoms, and was finished in 1952. However, it would go through years of testing before first being licensed in 1955 and used on a wide scale. Once asked who owned the patent on the vaccine, he said “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?” This allowed the vaccine to be spread widely and cheaply, almost eradicating polio within a few short years. Salk was born in New York ti Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants who had received no formal education, but he went on to earn a degree in chemistry as City College of New York, then went on to New York University to study medicine. His discovery made him an almost heroic figure in the US and abroad, but he was never comfortable with the attention. In an interview 25 years after his discovery he said: “It’s brought me enormous gratification, opened many opportunities, but at the same time placed many burdens on me.” In later years he turned his attention to develop a vaccine for AIDS, but died in 1995 before any major advancements could be made. A vaccine for that disease still eludes scientists today.

City Has Not Had Chief Rabbi Since 2003 By JTA Published October 21, 2014. The Jerusalem City Council elected two new chief rabbis, including Rabbi Shlomo Amar, the former chief rabbi of Israel. Amar was tapped as the citys Sephardi chief rabbi on Tuesday evening. Rabbi Aryeh Stern was picked as the Ashkenazi chief rabbi. Both had the support of Mayor Nir Barkat. Stern is a modern Orthodox rabbi and was backed by the Jewish Home party. Amar had the backing of the Shas party. The city has not had a chief rabbi since 2003. It is in my intention to serve as the rabbi of all Jerusalemites: secular, modern Orthodox and haredi alike, Stern said in a statement following the announcement of his election. The Jerusalem Rabbinate is a great merit, but it also comprises a hefty responsibility. I will make sure that the religious services will become accessible and friendly, and will serve as an outstanding model for all of the other rabbinates in Israel.

Rabbis Aryeh Stern and Shlomo Amar were voted Jerusalem’s new chief rabbis of on Tuesday evening, after 11 years in which the posts stood vacant. The 48 electors who cast their ballots at city hall on Tuesday afternoon chose Amar to serve in the capacity of the capital’s Sephardi chief rabbi, and Stern as Ashkenazi chief rabbi. The two winners enjoyed the backing of both Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat, who has long wanted to get a Zionist rabbi elected as the citys chief rabbi, and Naftali Bennett, chairman of religious-Zionist party Habayit Hayehudi. In the Sephardi race, Amar won 28 votes, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu got 18, and Rabbi Haim Amsalem two. Eliyahu, who is currently serving as chief rabbi of Safed, is well known to the Israeli public due to his anti-Arab statements and edicts. He was indicted for incitement to racism in 2007, but the charges were withdrawn after he retracted and apologized for his remarks. In the race for Ashkenazi chief rabbi, Stern won 27 votes, Rabbi Moshe Chaim Lau 20, and one envelope was left empty. A short ceremony was held after the voting results were announced, in which the winners praised Jerusalem and heaped thanks on a long list of rabbis and politicians who aided their campaigns. Using warm words, Amar offered his gratitude to Habayit Hayehudi party and called the movement’s veteran leader Rabbi Chaim Druckman “My friend and rabbi.” He neglected to thank Shas or its leader Aryeh Deri, despite the backing the party gave him. Habayit Hayehudi hailed the election results as a victory for Zionism. “Jerusalem is in Zionist hands. [We] offer our blessings to the elected chief rabbis of Jerusalem… This is an important victory for the lovers of the nation of Israel, of the land of Israel, and of the Torah of Israel.” Shas leader Aryeh Deri, speaking on behald of his party, also offered his best wishes to the victors.
Image via Shutterstock.com As I was sitting (and standing) in a synagogue over the holidays I let my mind wander, as I often do under similar circumstances, and tried to answer the eternal question: If God designated the Jews as the Chosen People why did he/she also referred to them as the stiff-necked people? (Exodus 32:9: I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people). Was God making an analogy between hard-to-control oxens and the stubborn and obstinate Isrealites who used them to plow the fields? While this is one explanation offered by Jewish scholars for the term stiff-necked people, as an academic neurologist, specializing in movement disorders, and someone who likes to challenge an established dogma, I raise the possibility that the stiff-necked Jews had a neurologic condition that caused neck spasms and/or neck stiffness. After all, it is well-accepted that Moses had a neurological condition that apparently caused a speech impediment (stuttering). Indeed, it is also well known that over the centuries and possibly millennia, Jews have had an increased risk for a variety of neurologic conditions, called movement disorders. This important association of neurologic movement disorders in people of Jewish ancestry has been recently described in a scientific article in JAMA Neurol (1), but I thought it would be important bring this to the attention of readers of this journal. Recent analysis of DNA sequences shared by Ashkenazi Jewish (AJ) individuals has provided insight into early Ashkenazi history. This research suggests that the world AJ population shrunk to only 350 as recently as 700 years ago (bottleneck) and that subsequent AJ generations, now totaling in millions, were a mixture of European and Middle Eastern ancestry (2). Because of intermarriages various genetic metabolic and neurologic diseases, such as Tay-Sachs, Niemann-Pick disease, mucolipidosis type IV, and Gaucher disease, became more common in the AJ population. In this review we wish to focus on neurologic diseases,categorized as movement disorders, that are being increasingly recognized to be relatively more frequent in people of Jewish ancestry compared to general population. What are movement disorders? Movement disorders is a group of neurologic conditions that can be divided into slow movements (hypokinetic disorders) or abnormal involuntary movements (hyperkinesias). The best example of a hypokinetic movement disorder is Parkinsons disease. Hyperkinetic movement disorders are subdivided into tremors, dystonia, tics, chorea, athetosis, ballism, stereotypy, and akathisia. The latter term, akathisia, refers to motor restlessness, known in Yiddish as the shpilke. Restless legs syndrome, another movement disorder that could be described as the shpilke, refers to restlessness that occurs chiefly at night and predominantly involves the legs. Furthermore, incoordination, gait and balance disorders, and abnormalities in muscle tone (such as spasticity and rigidity) are also included among movement disorders (3,4). While the basal ganglia, the deep part of the brain that is involved in the fine controls of body movements, have been implicated in most of the movement disorders, there are many other parts of the central and peripheral nervous system that may be involved. Since the diagnosis of a movement disorder is based on accurate recognition of specific phenomenological features, clinicians who encounter patients with movement disorders must use their powers of observation to carefully characterize the disorder. Therefore, the phenomenological categorization of the movement disorder is absolutely critical in formulating the differential diagnosis, finding the cause, and selecting the most appropriate treatment (5). The following is a brief summary of the most common movement disorders highlighting those that are particularly common in people of AJ ancestry. Parkinsons Disease

Jewish pro golfer Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton is not only an elite golfer on the women’s pro golf circuit, but is also a leader for breast cancer research over the past seven years. Pressel has raised over $3.4 million through her annual Morgan Pressel and Friends pro-am golf tournament each January at the St. Andrews Country Club where she resides. The money raised through the Morgan Pressel Foundation has benefited thousands of women through the founding last year of the Morgan Pressel Center For Cancer Genetics at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “Men and women now can be tested through genetics for breast, colon and ovarian cancer at the center, and we had more than doubled the number of people who have been tested, compared to 2013,” said Dr. Louise Morrell, medical director of the Lynn Cancer Institute. Morrell has dedicated more than 25 years to cancer genetics research and acknowledges that Ashkenazi (Eastern European origin) Jewish women are especially prone to breast and ovarian cancers. “The mutation of the BRCA gene 1 and BRCA gene 2 is extremely important among Ashkenazi Jewish women to identify early for cancer,” said Dr. Morrell. Even men can be at risk for breast cancer. Bob Weaver, a well-known television weatherman at NBC 6, died of breast cancer in 2006. Morrell acknowledges that Pressel has lent much more than her name and money to cancer research. “Morgan has made frequent visits to patients at the center and has inspired both patients and donors by her passion for raising funds for cancer research.” Pressel lost her mother, Kathy Krickstein Pressel, who died of breast cancer at age 43 in 2003, when Morgan was 15. In her memory, Pressel has also funded the Kathy Krickstein Mammovan, a mobile van that provides mammograms examination to women throughout Palm Beach County.

As a breast health specialist at West Boca Diagnostic Imaging, it was a natural fit for Dr. Cheryl Moss-Mellman to step into the role as chairwoman for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer South Palm Beach. The American Cancer Society’s walk takes place at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 25 from the city’s Mizner Park Amphitheater. West Boca Medical Center is a silver sponsor, committing to raise at least $2,500, the hospital’s CEO Mitch Feldman announced last month. Moss-Mellman recently talked about the results of a study on breast and ovarian cancer in Jewish women with an Ashkenazi (French, German or Eastern European) background. The study found they had high rates of these cancers, even when there was no family history. The findings were seen as a call for universal testing of this population. The study is called “Population-based screening for breast and ovarian cancer risk due to BRCA1 and BRCA2.” An abstract was provided by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America: pnas.org/content/111/39/14205.abstract. Were you surprised by this outcome? With the Ashkenazi Jewish population, the frequency of being a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene carrier occurs in one out of 40 women. It’s important to look at the individual family. Maybe someone is an only child with no aunts and uncles. Maybe in a small family there are more males. [BRCA1 and BRCA 2 mutations increase the risk of female breast and ovarian cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute]. Why does that make a difference? The reason we see it in such high frequency is when Jews living in shtetls [Jewish villages] or isolated populations were marrying their cousins. If there is a mutation, once you start intermarrying, that defect in the DNA will reproduce in that population. Are you already looking for these genes in your practice? The most important thing is having a thorough view of the family history. That will be your strongest predictor of who has a higher likelihood of having a BRCA mutation. It can be passed down from either side, and I generally try to get at least three generations.

An archival photo from long after the population bottleneck. Ashkenazi Jews hail from Eastern Europe”Ashkenaz” is the Hebrew word for Germanyand comprise the bulk of the Jewish population in the US. Their compatriots are Sephardi Jews, who lived in Spain until they were kicked out in 1492, and Mizrachi Jews, who lived in Arab countries for centuries until the founding of the state of Israel in 1948. Ashkenazi Jews are a genetically distinct population, andthe analysis of 128 complete Ashkenazi genomes shows just how distinct they are. Compared to genomes of modern Europeansin this case, the genomes of 26 Flemish peoplethe Ashkenazi genomes have 47 percent more novel DNA differencesper genome. These DNA variants, while novel, are population specific; sequence sharing, where two individuals have a set of the same variants, is eight percent more abundant among the Ashkenazi Jews than it is between the two populations or even among the Flemish genomes. Using the length of the shared genetic segments, researchers determined that the current Ashkenazi Jewish population underwent a bottleneck 25-32 generations back, approximately 600-800 years ago. Caused by the Plague in the mid 1300s, perhaps? Or maybe by the decimation of Eastern European Jewish communities by roving bands of Crusaders? Whatever the cause, this bottleneck reduced the founder population to between 250 and 420 individuals. When populations undergo bottlenecks that reduce their founder sizes, rare and recessive mutations become amplified. That is exactly what happened to Ashkenazi Jews. Pregnant Ashkenazi women currently get screened for a panel of thirty-six recessive diseases, including Tay-Sachs disease, Canavan disease, Gaucher disease, Fanconi anemia, and cystic fibrosis. They also have higher rates of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, estimated to occur in 1 in 40 individuals compared to 1 in 400 in the general population. These mutations cause 11 percent of the breast cancer and 40 percent of the ovarian cancer in the Ashkenazi Jewish population. Defining the extent of the unique Ashkenazi DNA variation, as this study has done, will make clinical diagnosis much simpler. Now, when an individual’s genome is sequenced, it can be compared against this panel rather than one from the general European population, and doctors will more easily be able to ascertain which mutations might make a patient sick.
