  1. It doesn’t surprise me that some make the argument that the Khazars became Ashkenazi in an attempt to “undermine the Jewish claim to antiquity” [to the land of israel] (Dr. Henry Abramson). There is so much more evidence pointing to the fact that Ashkenazic Jews in fact had no ties to the Khazars- mainly due to the fact that there is no trace of Turkish in their language. It makes much more sense that just as many historians have theorized that the reason for King Bulans’ conversion had nothing to do with a love for Judaism, so too, the Khazars’ “disappearance” from Judaism probably came about as a result of them never being attached to it in the first place. -Gabriella Yachad

  2. I am intrigued by history. Mainly because it does repeat itself. I see in this video what I have known for some time; that religion is vain. This kingdom used religion as a cover to show they wanted respect. I am glad this was shared!
