Introduction / History

The Bukharic or Bukharan Jews are from a former Central Asian state called Bukhara. Since the end of the Soviet Union many of them have come to live in the United States of America.

Many Bukharan Jews live in New York, Arizona, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver, San Diego and other American cities. There are Bukharan restaurants and gift shops in Forest Hills in New York where the Bukharan Jews have a closeness to each other. They were once cut off from the Jewish world but due to lobbying they are now much better known in America.

The Bukharan Jews in America speak English. They like to eat their ethnic foods and to keep their culture.

Prayer Points

Pray that The Bukharan Jews come to realize that Jesus Christ in the Bible is the Messiah.
Pray that Messianic Jews in America will lead them to Jesus Christ.
