Assyrian family on Oprah Winfrey show

Nov-16-1999 at 02:50 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

The Oprah Winfrey Show is scheduled to air a program on dieting & nutrition and an Assyrian family took part in that program. Assyrian food (dolma) and cultural briefing will be shown and discussed in a very short segment.

Please watch this Thursday's show of Oprah Winfrey (11/18). The scene was shot at an Assyrian house in Chicago and took some 7 hours, but the clip on TV will last ONE minute only
It will be shown, as I was told, right after the second or third commercial break, so do not blink, or you will miss it.

Is it true that 30 millions watch that show?

Hi Jenna, I noted with interest your EXCITEMENT @ the mere mention of our nationality on television........It IS exciting to HEAR it...isn't it ???
How odd..................I wonder WHY we are so AMAZED and excited by hearing the word ASSYRIANS on TV.......perhaps because it somehow serves to confirm that we actually EXIST in this modern day of OPRAH & The INTERNET ????????...That we exist BEYOND our own little circles of ASSYRIAN Parties & Clubs & Weddings & Churches .......That we can STILL CONTRIBUTE POSITIVELY to the world we live in NOW........Wow what a Buzz it must have been to have seen that episode ....Personally I missed it.....But your post was filled with such emotion that I have been touched by it !.

Love, Shoushan

Assyria \ã-'sir-é-ä\ n (1998)   1:  an ancient empire of Ashur   2:  a democratic state in Bet-Nahren, Assyria (northern Iraq, northwestern Iran, southeastern Turkey and eastern Syria.)   3:  a democratic state that fosters the social and political rights to all of its inhabitants irrespective of their religion, race, or gender   4:  a democratic state that believes in the freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture in faithfulness to the principles of the United Nations Charter — Atour synonym

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
