Where Was Khazaria Located?
What country are Jewish people from? Please answer!?
What country are Jewish people from? I really don't know the answer. I sort of think it's Poland, but I'm not 100% positive. Please help and thank you for your time :]
Ashkenazi "Jews" came from Khazaria, located in southern Russia just north of the Caucasus Mountains.
Sephardic Jews come from Israel.
Why do many Jews find it so threatening to accept the historical fact that the Khazar Kingdom adopted Judaism?
In the 10th century Khazaria (located near present day Russia) adopted Judaism as their religion and followed the rabbinical faith. Khazaria was later destroyed by the Christians which led the Khazar Jews to be dispersed throughout Europe. Why are so many Jews afraid of accepting the history of these Jewish converts ? Is it threatening to them to admit that a huge number of European Jews are more closely related to Atila the Hun than to Abraham and Isaac ? http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=slv1-&p=khazar+kingdom ,
Nah- we all lknow very well that the Khazars converted, and the disputation between the Jews, Muslims and Christians which resulted in the Khazars converting was recorded in a book called Sefer Khuzari.
What we get irritated by are the ignorant (and frequnetly neo-Nazis) who somehow think that a bunch of Mongols (alternatively Turks- the exact racial heritage of the ancient Khazars is subject to conjecture) converting somehow means that every Jew from Europe is descended form them. It is a bizaare and blatantly incorrect theory from the historical, geographical and, more recently, the genetic data available- but anti-Semites seem to like and trot this out as if suddenly invalidates the Jewishness of Ashkenazi Jews.

Howie's is one of many gaming centers around the country.
Gaming centers typically had PCs and/or console that are pay to play for video games. Loosely comparable to arcades in the 80's, Gaming centers frequently hold over night lock-ins, tournaments and even showcase advanced copies of upcoming games.
While Howie's is located in CA, other notable places:
EMAG located in AZ
Gigabits located in FL
Ebash located in IN

where is the heart located in human body?
The heart is located in the chest between the lungs behind the sternum and above the diaphragm. It is surrounded by the pericardium. Its size is about that of a fist, and its weight is about 250-300 g. Its center is located about 1.5 cm to the left of the midsagittal plane. Located above the heart are the great vessels: the superior and inferior vena cava, the pulmonary artery and vein, as well as the aorta. The aortic arch lies behind the heart. The esophagus and the spine lie further behind the heart.
