We look at the observance of Three Weeks,(Hebrew Bein Hametzarim,- Between the Straits) which commemorates the days between the first breaching of the walls of Jerusalem in 586 bce by Babylonian troops under Nebuchadrezzar to the subsequent destruction of the First Temple of Jerusalem.

Ashkenazi Jews are extremely inbred
One of the main reasons why Jeshuaists, of which there are also several of Ashkenazi or Germanic origin (from West and Central Europe plus some from Scandinavia), are allowed to marry someone of non-Ashkenazi Jewish descent or even non-Jewish descent is simply to ensure that there is no ‘inbreeding‘ and the family can be kept healthy.
Jeshuaists namely believe the Elohim has made us His people, but we have to protect ourselves that people also, by taking care that no genetic disease can come into existence by ourselves mixing with our own blood.
We do believe that from a genetic point of view, it’s good if a person reproduces with someone from a different group, and as such can create a stronger being than by weakening the group staying in the same family. Our kehillot or Jewish communities do not have enough people to make a healthy connection with others. Our ties (and genes) are too much connected, and therefore we should allow our kids to have relationships with non-Jews or non-Jeshuaists.
Neurologists are inherently interested in psychosis, not least because too much dopamine in the form of L-DOPA can trigger it. I’ve always found it remarkable that dopamine blocking agents (phenothiazines, and most antipsychotics) can attack psychotic thought itself. This is much more impressive to me than the ability of other drugs (alcohol, coffee, marijuana, cocaine) to affect mood.
So it’s always worthwhile to read another paper about the genetics of schizophrenia, a very hereditary disease. All the risk factors we’ve found by GWAS (Genome Wide Association Studies) account for at most of 1/3 of genetic risk in schizophrenia. For details please see https://luysii.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/tolstoy-rides-again-schizophrenia/.
So I was interested in another crack at finding more genetic causes of schizophrenia [ Neuron 109, 1465–1478, May 5, 2021 ]. As often happens, the most interesting thing in the paper was something totally tangential to my original interest in it.
Here it is — ”…

13) Kuntres Rosh Hashono, 5752
Released a few days in advance of Rosh Hashono, the discourse begins with the verse from the prophet Yeshaya: “On that day a great shofar will be sounded, and the ones who are lost in the land of Ashur and the ones who are pushed away in the land of Mitzrayim, will come and prostrate themselves to Hashem on the Holy Mountain in Yerushalayim.”
The Rebbe asks a few questions on this verse: What is special about a “great shofar”? Why does it say that the shofar “will be sounded” without specifying who will be sounding it — it seems as though it will be sounded on its own?
The shofar here is explained in spiritual terms: the cry of the innermost point in the heart which is above intellect. This cry draws down the corresponding level from Above, meaning the Supernal Will which transcends the level of Chochma (usually…
