Kavkazi Jews (Part 1/3): At the Crossroads of Sephardic, Mizrahi, and Russian-Speaking Worlds
Hosted By: The American Sephardi Federation (ASF)
The histories and cultures of Kavkazi (Mountain), Georgian, and Bukharian Jews are situated at the unique intersection of Sephardic, Mizrahi, and Russian-Speaking Jewish (RSJ) identities. Through this 3-part learning series, we will explore the multilayered and rich stories of these millennia-old communities in Central Asia and the Caucasus—discovering the ways in which they have developed their mosaic cultures through dynamic interactions with the dominant and changing societies surrounding them. Our discussion will also shed light on how their experiences fit into the broader historical saga of the Jewish people.
