    Jews lived in Central Asia for over 2,500 years, one of the oldest Jewish communities in the Diaspora. Many Bukharians believe they are descended from the Ten Lost Tribes. Today Queens is home to the second-largest Bukharian Jewish community in the world. We will explore the history of the Bukharian Jews with Andrée Aelion Brooks, and take a peek into their lives and culture over the centuries. Ms. Brooks is an Associate Fellow, Yale University and a former contributing columnist for The New York Times.
