Bukharian Culture

The Bukharian culture is one that rich and full of great history. Amongst the Bukharian people are the Bukharian Jews. The Bukharian Jews originated from a former Central Asian territory known as the Emirate of Bukhara. This location had a large Jewish population, in which all spoke Bukhori, which is a dialect of the Tajik-Persian language. Ever since the disbanding of the former Soviet Union, a majority of the Bukharian Jews made their way into either Israel, the United States, Europe and Australia.

Being one of the oldest groups of Jews, it is no surprise that the Bukharians have such a rich culture. Though many of the Jews had fairly similar dress codes, the Bukharians had a couple noticeable differences in theirs. One of the traditions that can still be seen within Bukharian Jews today is the one that takes place during weddings. The bride and her immediate relatives can be seen wearing the conventional kaftan, which is a heavily embroidered hat that is worn during the wedding dances.
