Bukharian, Persian and Mediterranean Networking Event - Nowruz - The Guest - North Miami Beach
The Bukharian Jewish community is a group of Jews who have lived in Central Asia, specifically in the area of Bukhara (present-day Uzbekistan), for over two thousand years. They have their own distinct cultural and religious practices, such as speaking Bukhori (a dialect of Persian) and following Sephardic Jewish law. In the 20th century, many Bukharian Jews emigrated to Israel, the United States, and other countries due to political instability and economic hardship in their native region. Today, the Bukharian Jewish community continues to thrive in diaspora, preserving their heritage and passing down their traditions to future generations.
