Medical genetics of Jews – Wikipedia

| March 20, 2023

The medical genetics of Jews have been studied to identify and prevent some rare genetic diseases that, while still rare, are more common than average among people of Jewish descent. There are several autosomal recessive genetic disorders that are more common than average in ethnically Jewish populations, particularly Ashkenazi Jews, because of relatively recent population bottlenecks and because of consanguineous marriage (marriage of second cousins or closer).[1] These two phenomena reduce genetic diversity and raise the chance that two parents will carry a mutation in the same gene and pass on both mutations to a child. The genetics of Ashkenazi Jews have been particularly well studied, because the phenomenon affects them the most

What does it mean to be genetically Jewish? – the Guardian

When my parents sent their saliva away to a genetic testing company late last year and were informed via email a few weeks later that they are both 100% Ashkenazi Jewish, it struck me as slightly odd. Most people I know who have done DNA tests received ancestry results that correspond to geographical areas Chinese, British, West African. Jewish, by comparison, is typically parsed as a religious or cultural identity

Khazar hypothesis of Ashkenazi ancestry – Wikipedia

| December 20, 2022

Largely abandoned theory about Jewish descent The Khazar hypothesis of Ashkenazi ancestry, often called the Khazar myth by its critics,[1]:369[2]:VIII[3] is a largely abandoned historical hypothesis. The hypothesis postulated that Ashkenazi Jews were primarily, or to a large extent, descended from Khazars, a multi-ethnic conglomerate of mostly Turkic peoples who formed a semi-nomadic khanate in and around the northern and central Caucasus and the PonticCaspian steppe. The hypothesis also postulated that after collapse of the Khazar empire, the Khazars fled to Eastern Europe and made up a large part of the Jews there.[4] The hypothesis draws on some medieval sources such as the Khazar Correspondence, according to which at some point in the 8th9th centuries, a small number of Khazars were said by Judah Halevi and Abraham ibn Daud to have converted to Rabbinic Judaism.[5] The scope of the conversion within the Khazar Khanate remains uncertain, but the evidence used to tie the Ashkenazi communities to the Khazars is meager and subject to conflicting interpretations.[6][7][8][9] Genetic studies on Jews have found no substantive evidence of a Khazar origin among Ashkenazi Jews.
