*SPECIAL PRE-YNY EVENT*
Join us in exploring the Bukharian community of Queens, NY– known to locals as Registan Park (Rego Park) and Bukharian Broadway. Learn about the Jewish community that lived for over 2000 years on the Silk Road in cities such as Samarkand, Dunshabe and Tashkent. Now largely resettled in large diasporic enclaves in Queens and Israel, we’ll explore how community members continue to preserve unique Central Asian traditions while creating one of New York’s most vibrant contemporary Jewish communities.
Tour will include:
*Visit to the world’s only Bukharian Jewish Museum.
*Walking tour of the neighborhood
*Visits to the main synagogues of the community
*Lunch and mini concert of Bukharian music at a Bukharian Restaurant (Glatt Kosher)
The tour will be conducted in English with Russian translations available. If you have any questions about the tour please call Menashe at 914-364-2572
