Shoshannah - this, too, may interest you. You probably heard the claim that  
European Jews are actually descendants of the Khazars. Well, since Eastern  
European Jews spoke the German-derived Yiddish they must have lived in  and then 
migrated from West (German lands) to East (Poland). Had they been  Khazars, 
their migration would have been East to West and they would have spoken  a 
Turkic language or dialect with some Hebrew admixture. So the identification  of 
European Jews with Khazars is easily refuted via language.
