Virtual Tour of Jewish Afghanistan

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning

Join My Jewish Learning and the Jewish Telegraphic Agency to dive into the history and culture of a 2,500+ year old Jewish community. Jews first arrived in Afghanistan while it was still under the control of the Achaemenid Empire and Zoroastrianism and Buddhism were the dominant surrounding religions. They lived through Mongol invasions, the rise and fall of various kingdoms, the advent and spread of Islam, trading with nomads and sedentary peoples among Afghanistan’s mountains. Throughout the centuries, they were scholars, polemics, traders, artists, singers – at times a protected minority, at others, openly persecuted. Discover Jewish life at the crossroads of the world with tour guide Sara Koplik, author of “A Political and Economic History of the Jews of Afghanistan” and community activist and jewelry designer Osnat Gad.
