About

Genesis

The number of the apartment occupied by Mohinder Suresh, and earlier, by his father Chandra Suresh, is 613. In traditional Judaism, 613 is the number of commandments ("mitzvot") that are incumbent upon Jewish people to perform, and in some circles, mystical qualities are ascribed to the number itself.

"Genesis" is the first of the Law, the 5 books of Moses.

Graphic Novel:Wireless, Part 1

Hana remembers her Jewish ancestors and their faith. In 1944, her grandmother fought against the Nazis in World War II, and was placed in Auschwitz with other Jews. In 1967, her mother fights in the territorial Six-Day War between Israeli Jews and Egyptian Muslims.

Graphic Novel:Wireless, Part 4

After victoriously fighting for her country, Zahava Gitelman jubilantly waves the Israeli flag.

Notes

  • In an interview, Greg Grunberg insinuates that Matt Parkman is Jewish. This is almost hinted in Five Years Gone when Matt says "Mazel tov" to Noah Bennet for his daughter's marriage. "Mazel tov" is the Hebrew phrase of congratulations.
  • Parkman also uses the phrase "make sure everything's kosher" in Powerless. "Kosher" is a term to describe whether or not a food is permitted to be eaten in Judaism. In this phrase Parkman uses the term synonymously with "all right".
  • It is hinted that Lauren Gilmore is Jewish. In Once Upon a Time in Texas, she claims that she missed her nephew's Bar Mitzvah because she was busy bagging and tagging.
