Brit milah There are ancient religious requirements for circumcision. The Hebrew Bible commands Jews to circumcise their male children on the eighth day of life, and to circumcise their male slaves Genesis Laws banning circumcision are also ancient. The ancient Greeks prized the foreskin and disapproved of the Jewish custom of circumcision. Antoninus Pius permitted Jews to circumcise their own sons. However, he forbade the circumcision of non-Jews that were either foreign-slaves or non-Jewish members of the household, contrary to Genesis Australia[ edit ] In , a non-binding research paper of the Queensland Law Reform Commission Circumcision of Male Infants concluded that “On a strict interpretation of the assault provisions of the Queensland Criminal Code, routine circumcision of a male infant could be regarded as a criminal act”, and that doctors who perform circumcision on male infants may be liable to civil claims by that child at a later date.

A further 50, or so Canadians report being Jewish by ethnic origin but identified with another religion. Toronto is today a major Torah city, with lots of outreach as well.

The “traditional” view is that Eastern European Jews descend almost entirely from French and German Jews. This essay presents the pros and cons of the controversial “Khazar theory” of Eastern European Jewish origins and will attempt to provide a likely middle-ground solution to the question.
Are Russian Jews Descended from the Khazars? Unauthorized reproduction of this page is prohibited. This essay presents the pros and cons of the controversial “Khazar theory” of Eastern European Jewish origins and will attempt to provide a likely middle-ground solution to the question. Unlike other treatments of the question, this essay uses recent discoveries, is meant to be objective, and is fully sourced so that you can be guaranteed of the authenticity of the information. Although subsequent genetic evidence found no trace of Khazarian-related ancestry in any modern Jewish population, I’m keeping this essay online for the time being so you can analyze different writers’ arguments for and against this proposition.
Many of these writers made naive simplifications. The argument I committed to paper in or for publication in that Eastern European Jewish ancestry “is more complex than previously envisioned” has stood the test of time better than those other writers’ arguments since we now have genetic evidence of Armenian, Greek, Italian, French, Berber, Slavic, and Chinese introgressions into the Eastern European Jewish gene pool whose core element is Israelite.
It just happens that a Khazarian element is missing. Evidence in favor of the Khazar theory According to most historical sources, Judaism was widespread among the Khazar inhabitants of the Khazar kingdom. Archaeological evidence, however, has not yet corroborated this. The findings described below, some of which are more conclusive than others, add strength to the argument that there were many Jews residing in eastern Europe prior to the immigration of German, Austrian, Bohemian, Spanish, and Portugese Jews into Poland and Hungary.

Information on iconography from the Bibliokek Nationale Many Internet sites have been correctly accused of being crypto-Jewish, or written by trolls, or written by professional spooks, or just ignorantly biased to Jews. People unused to Jewish analyses may like my soft introduction, my own extremely incomplete list of ‘joff’ websites, Jews-off-the-radar, with my reasoning.
I’ve tried to explain in what respects they are wrong, incomplete, dishonest, and evil. Many are shills for Jews, large numbers are scared to discuss Jewish wire-pulling, many are paid by Jews or Jewish pressure groups. By this time, virtually all political parties are subservient to Jews. And conversely, here’s my intermittently-compiled list of ‘jadar’ sites, with brief comments—some a bit unkind, where I think I’ve found covert Jew biases.

Man tossed behind bars for biting off ex wife’s nose Four-and-a-half years ago, Gital Dodelson, now 25, of Lakewood, NJ, married Avrohom Meir Weiss, part of a respected rabbinic family on Staten Island. Ten months after the wedding, Dodelson left the marital home with their newborn son, claiming her husband was controlling and manipulative. Now, after more than three years of pleading with Weiss to sign the document that will set her free, Dodelson has gone public with her story in The Post: As I zip up her dress, I feign a smile — but inside I feel despair.
When I first met Avrohom in October , I thought he was great husband material. They told me that at 23, he was learned, a great Talmudic scholar from an esteemed family, whose great-grandfather, Moshe Feinstein, was a legendary rabbi. Days later, there was a knock at my front door.
