The Jews of Georgia: A Diverse and Ancient Community in the Caucasus
Hosted By: Qesher
Travel to the Caucasus Mountains and get acquainted with a diverse Jewish world, one that still sings in Georgian, Yiddish, Ladino and Juhuri/Judeo-Tat (Caucasian Persian). All these languages were spoken by Georgia’s Jewish communities, something which made the country one of the most unique locations in the Jewish world. From its peak of 100,000 members, today the Georgian Jewish population comprises only a few thousand people, after the majority immigrated to Israel, United States and Belgium.
