The Jews of Georgia: Travel to the Caucasus Mountains

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

The origin of Georgian Jews, one of the oldest surviving Diaspora Jewish communities – also known as “”Gurjim”” or “”Ebraeli””, is debated, but some claim they are descendants of the ten tribes exiled by Shalmaneser. Others say the first Jews made their way to southern Georgia after Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E. after first fleeing to Babylonia. 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. Travel to the Caucasus Mountains and get acquainted with a diverse Jewish world, one that still sings in Georgian, Yiddish, Ladino and Jukhuri.
