Can anyone please tell us when Challey Change It’s Name To Challah?
98% of Jews that settled in America are of Ashkenazic background having Grandparents hailing from Eastern Europe While less than 2% are from Sephardic background.So why change the name to suit the 2%.
I & many New York Jews always called the traditional braided egg bread a Challey and so did everyone else that I grew up with in New York City Which had the largest Jewish population worldwide next to Israel
At what juncture was it changed to Challah,? To pronounce it Challah sound phoney and contrived.Just like Yom Kippur (Kippoor) from Yom Kippa..
Even worse is when it is becoming spoken without the Chuff sound and called a Hallah… Both sound equally stupid and absurbed.
It wasn’t before on or around circa 1976 that Challey was sold all week.Before that only on Friday for Shabbus.
Bring back the former pronunciation “CHALLEY”and Yom Kippa.
In addition when you purchase a Store or Bakery bought Challey there is not an once of sweetness..no sugar or honey..It tastes lousy not like in years past
Leonard Solomon Lerman was born 1925 an American scientist most noted for his work on DNA. Lerman, DNA researcher & co-inventor of DGGE, is born in Pittsburgh.
We wonder what Leonard Lerman whould have to say on this matter.
A One Minute Read….
Just how Accurate Are All Those Ancestral DNA Home Kits?
Let us start by saying that we read that a chimpanzee shares 99% of our DNA.So in other words All these home kits take everyone back to hundred and thousands of years all the way the way back to our Neanderthal relative with that 1%? Come on give us a break.
An entire family took a DNA test from one of these popular DNA home testing kits.One of my staff members took such a test. It showed both him and his sister are listed as full brother and sister…yet DNA found relatives that are are his 2nd cousin are his sister’s distant cousin..how is this possible?
Let’s clue everyone in right away in that these home DNA kits are no where in the same league as the DNA used in frenscic Police Dept Labs.In our humble opinion we’d put in the same category as if you reading your horoscope in the newspaper..In other words don’t bet your house on these results. We say take for entertainment purchases only..and that our personal take.
Classic Example Below.
Now a 2nd cousin is a close relative …. it means that one of your grandparents and their grandparents were siblings.It is impossible for you to have a 2nd cousin with and your full siblings is their 6th cousin… After they complained about that they reinterpreted their ancestral bio..Now they say that they’re 99% Ashenazic Jewish and less than 1% European and that 1%=they Trace their ancestry and and they say they are related to famous Polish astronomy Copernicus.. We’d like to know what DNA sample of Copernicus did they have to make such a bizzare outrageous claim who was a contemporary of Columbus..
Now all these DNA outfits know that both you your Brother Elmo plus your Sister Sue all where born in the same hospital..went to the same grammar school ..lived at the same address so it is safe to assume that all are related and full siblings..not necessarily so.
These DNA Outfits have the exact same history for Jews of Polish Background coupled and mirroring the same exact DNA as those Jews of Russian of Background.
Jews of Polish background are Dark & have black hair while Russian Jews are generally Blonde haired stocky and triangular shared head. .These two groups of Jews are from first a lack of a better term “different stock’ thus making it impossible for booth groups to have identical DNA Markers.
Let us tell you our theory.What we believe what they are doing is merely conducting a deep computer searches..90% deep computer searches and only 10% actual DNA testing at the most….
Most people think of computer search engines as a relative new thing ..not so.
Computers go back hundreds of years.
Henry Faulds – Father of Fingerprints. Henry Faulds was a Scottish physician, missionary, and scientist who is noted for the development of fingerprints.
Then cames , F Galton an anthropologist and a cousin of Charles Darwin, began his observations of fingerprints as a means of identification in the in 1880.
So inorder to make any attempts at identifications a computer is needed.
Deep computer searches may contain restricted sealed records going back hundreds of years that may be in play and may not be that small cup of spittle that we all send in…All records from School records to vital statistics from church recordings going back not only your time but your grandparents and beyond are all available in deep computer searches.There are also records from the census bureau with data that was taken years ago by Government agency’s both obtained & going back longer more than a century.They unlike the public at loge have access to all these Bureau of Vital Statistics records.. Census.. Voting Registration..Data placed Micrography.. Cemetery Internments Files .Combined Various Hospital Admissions Discharges Including Patient Charts etc.
We will.go out on a limb and say that we believe that every 10,000 kits sent in under go a test closer analysis closer to that DNA mirroring Police frenscic methods than the run of the mill results that the average Joe and Jane receive.. Although have the actual data to back this up..but it makes sense.This enables these outfits to pump out their chest and say see what we did.
It may all bases on presumption rather than cold hard science..
Is this how they determine to have you trade those Dutch Clogs for a pair of Bruno Magli Shoes .get real…get the picture!
