Join the BZD and our beloved guide, Jacob Shoshan, as we travel along the Silk Road.

In the first part of this two-part series, we will learn about the Jewish communities dating back to 2,500 years through exploring the ancient cities, villages and impressive architectures, shrines and sanctuaries, the colorful silk market places, and much more! As we travel, we will visit places like the strait of Bosphorus, Anatolia in Asia Minor, the beautiful shores of the Black Sea, Central Asia, and the Caspian Sea.
