    Hi Rabbi YY

    The haters of the Jews dismiss European Ashkenazi Jews as descendants
    of the Khazars. I prefer to call that "khazzerai". They say Ashkenzim
    are not real Jews descended
    from our avot.

    Can you please give a source where one can disprove them? I thought
    the Khazars were a myth because apparently (?) none of our great rabbis
    write about this mass conversion
    etc.

    Would you please clarify that the Ashekenzim are not descended from
    them? Or send me to a source, if possible (English, please). I don't think they are in any way.

    That would be very helpful.

    Thanks for all the great work that you do, b'hatzlacha rabah.
