The Atlantic Ocean lies to the west of Spain. Despite the evident diversity displayed by the world's distinctive Jewish populations, both culturally and physically, genetic studies have demonstrated most of these to be genetically related to one another, having ultimately originated from a common ancient Israelite population that underwent geographic branching and subsequent independent evolutions. [11] A study published by the National Academy of Sciences stated that "The results support the hypothesis that the paternal gene pools of Jewish communities from Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East descended from a common Middle Eastern ancestral population, and suggest that most Jewish communities have remained relatively isolated from neighboring non-Jewish communities during and after the Diaspora." [11] Researchers expressed surprise at the remarkable genetic uniformity they found among modern Jews, no matter where the diaspora has become dispersed around the world. [11] Moreover, DNA tests have demonstrated substantially less inter-marriage in most of the various Jewish ethnic divisions over the last 3,000 years than in other populations. [12] The findings lend support to traditional Jewish accounts accrediting their founding to exiled Israelite populations, and counters theories that many or most of the world's Jewish populations were founded by entirely gentile populations that adopted the Jewish faith, as in the notable case of the historic Khazars. [12] [13] Although groups such as the Khazars could have been absorbed into modern Jewish populations — in the Khazars' case, absorbed into the Ashkenazim — it is unlikely that they formed a large percentage of the ancestors of modern Ashkenazi Jews, and much less that they were the genesis of the Ashkenazim. [14] Even the archetype of Israelite-origin is also beginning to be reviewed for some Jewish populations amid newer studies.

During the counter-reformation in 16th C. persecutions of Jews still increased. Paris was the grande dame; Berlin the upstart. Velvel Pasternak, musicologist and major publisher of Jewish music, talks about Jewish Music,... The Empirical methodology was adopted by European Ashkenazi rabbis involved in defining the Jewish laws for writing given names in Gitin (Jewish divorce documents).� Using contemporary and recent field data from actual divorce cases and the investigative results of divorce rabbis, they determined by statistical study and inductive reasoning what groups of linked names individual Jews actually chose for themselves.� Furthermore, they analyzed these data in the light of Jewish law to determine rules for defining the legal names to be written in Gitin.� The resulting Primary or legal name for use in a Get was usually the Hebrew or Yiddish name given at birth (since from a Jewish standpoint, this was the most important name that he/she would ever have) plus any additional kinuim (certain other Yiddish and/or secular names) needed for proper identification.� These data sources used by the rabbis may be considered to be of first quality from the point of view of name linkage within a family of names.

She said Secular Judaism differs from its 35-year-old Humanistic counterpart by being more politically and socially active and less Western-oriented, as well as non-Zionistic.
