    Jews did not suddenly sprout out of Khazaria like a bed of tulips and end up in Europe. Jewish migration to Khazaria (and worldwide) can be traced back to Judah --according to Elhaik's study. Look at Elhaik's report on page 31. You will find an interesting map of migration patterns out of Judah dating from 9th century B.C.E. to 7th century C.E. It clearly shows that Jewish communities migrated from Judah to Kharzaria from 5 BCE to 7 CE. Jews from Judah also migrated to Mesopotamia then migrated again to Kharzaria from the 6th century B.C.E to 7th century C.E. Therefore, Jewish communities in Kharzaria who migrated to Europe can still be traced back to their roots in Judah from the 9th century B.C.E. to 7th century C.E.
