From Mount Ararat to Mount Sinai: The Jews of Armenia

Hosted By: Qesher

The first contacts between Jews and Armenians date back to antiquity, and there is evidence of Jewish settlements in the Armenian Highlands dating as early as the 1st century BC. Currently, the Jewish community of Armenia is estimated at around 500 – 2000 people, mostly descendants of Ashkenazi Jews who fled Eastern Europe and relocated here, finding a safe haven before and during World War II. This is the story of a community that strives to celebrate Judaism beyond the fact of simply having Jewish roots.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
