Bukharian Jews: The Journey from Israel to Iran, and the Silk Road; Featuring David Milov | Season II: Episode 5

Bukharian Jews have a fascinating history – from their journey to the Persian Empire from Israel, and all along the Silk Road, until ending up not just in Uzbekistan, but throughout other parts of Central Asia such as Tajikistan and Dagestan.

Please join the guest of honor, David Milov, as he shares the rich history of his community, the unique customs, delicious sounding dishes, and where the Bukharian Jews today see themselves, as part of the larger Jewish world.

Additionally, we tackle Muslim-Jewish relations in Uzbekistan, the effects of Communism, and the importance of a strong Jewish identity through the ebbs and flows of history.
