BUKHARA: Synagogue & the Jewish Cemetery, One of the Oldest Jewish Communities ウズベキスタン ブハラのユダヤ人文化


Home to one of the world’s oldest and, in centuries past, biggest Jewish communities, Bukhara — a fabled city of ancient ruins and Islamic architectural treasures in central Uzbekistan — has a Muslim population of more than 270,000 people but, according to most estimates, only 100 to 150 Jews.

Special thanks to Mr. Jakhongir (the director of the Jewish Cemetery) for the tour of the synagogue and the cemetery and Rashed Syed for arranging the meeting for me.
