The experience of the native Jews of Central Asia—Bukharian Jews—is situated at a unique, and lesser-known, intersection of Sephardic, Mizrahi, and Russian-speaking Jewish identities. This interactive talk will explore the vibrant and multifaceted story of the millennia-old Jewish community—discovering the ways in which Bukharian Jews have developed their mosaic culture through a dynamic interaction with the dominant and changing societies surrounding them. Our discussion will also shed light on how the Bukharian Jewish journey fits into the broader historical saga of the Jewish people.
