WHO IS SURMA D'BETH MAR SHIMUN? (SURMA KHANUM)

LADY SURMA D’BETH MAR SHIMUN

Surma Khanum was born in Qudchanis, located in South East Turkey on January 27,1883 the eldest of eight children. Two of the eight children later became patriarchs, Mar Beyamin Shimun XXI and Mar Polous Shimun XXII. The Lady Surma’s education began at an early age with a focus on secular affairs, which included becoming fluent in the English language. Her teacher was Rabbi Doctor W.H. Browne of the Archbishop of Canterbury mission. In the truculent days ahead, her education, subsequent knowledge of western culture and the English language became a vital part of her work enabling her to serve the Assyrians nation. She was the official translator for both Mar Benyamin and Mar Polous. In the upheaval that faced the Assyrian nation, Surma Khanum accepted religious vows, in which she never married and abstained from eating meat. Instead, this was a sacred vow she had taken in which she devoted her life to the Patriarch(s). Her deep knowledge and understanding of the Church of the East’s Liturgy as well as her acuity of statecraft earned her the role of trusted councilor and advisor to three patriarchs. Lady Surma was an acknowledged subject matter expert in the liturgy and cannons of the Church of the East.
Representing the Assyrian cause, Lady Surma’s accomplishments included traveling throughout the western world, having been received at the White House by President Calvin Coolidge and at Buckingham Palace, by HRH Queen Mary. The Lady Surma was the only woman in attendance at the League of Nations, representing the Patriarch of the Church of the East, the Assyrian people and her (Read full article here)

American-Assyrian Tennis legend Andre Agassi, (born April 29, 1970, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.), Assyrian-American professional tennis player who won eight Grand Slam titles, as well as the “career Grand Slam” for winning each of the four major tennis tournaments—Wimbledon, the Australian Open, the French Open, and the U.S. Open—at least once.Andre’s father, Emmanuel “Mike” Agassi, was Assyrian who was born in Salmas, Iran. He was an Olympic boxer and represented Iran in the 1948 and 1952 Olympics. By age 2 he could serve a tennis ball on a full court. At 13 he was sent to a tennis academy in Bradenton, Florida, run by Nick Bolletieri, who later became his coach. In 1987 Agassi won his first professional tournament.
A gold medal in the men’s singles event at the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, marked Agassi’s only notable victory in 1996. In 1999 Agassi won the French Open to become the fifth men’s player in history to win all four Grand Slam events, and the first to do it on three different surfaces. A title at the U.S. Open in September confirmed that he was back in top form, and he returned to the number one ranking at the end of 1999. Agassi won a second Australian Open in 2000 and a third in 2001.Agassi also was notable for the charitable ventures he undertook, including the founding of the Andre Agassi Foundation (1994) to aid at-risk children. In 2001 he opened the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, a tuition-free charter school based in Las Vegas that is open to disadvantaged children. His autobiography, Open, was published in 2009.

Assyrian cult relief, ca. 2.000 BC. from the temple of God Ashur at the city of Assur in Assyria. The central part of the relief depicts a male deity. Two smaller water deities stand on either side of him.
He holds two long branches, and two goats standing on their hind legs appear to eat from these branches.
