NEW YORK -- The world's oldest Jewish person, Evelyn Kozak, whose family fled Russia to escape anti-Semitism in the 1880s, has died at age 113.

Kozak died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack the day before, her granddaughter Brucha Weisberger said. She was buried next to her parents in a cemetery in Brooklyn.

Kozak was the world's oldest documented Jewish person and the world's seventh-oldest person, said Robert Young, a senior database administrator at the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, an organization of physicians, scientists and engineers who validate supercentenarians, people 110 or older.

Always 'fleeing anti-semitiism'.

RIP, Miss Kozak, and hopefully, Jesus Christ is not 'anti-semitic' because where will you flee then?

The 'world's oldest documented Jewish person'...That's a funny turn of phrase.  ;D

The is that they were probably fleeing the Pale of Settlement to begin the process of subversion in America.
