The Jews of Crimea and the story of the Karaites
Hosted By: Qesher
The peninsula of Crimea, on the northern shore of the Black Sea, has been historically a land of different peoples and contested borders. Two different Jewish communities also lived here side by side for a very long time: traditional Ashkenazi Jews and Karaites. Visit Crimea and learn the differences between traditional (Rabbinic) and Karaite (Non-rabbinic) Jews. Learn about Jewish agricultural settlements, Zionist training camps and Soviet Jewish collective farms. Discuss the history and traditions of the Karaites in the Russian Empire and look at the Synagogues, Karaite praying homes (Kenesas) and old Jewish cemeteries.
