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.

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.
