The Jews of Uzbekistan can be divided into two categories: the Ashkenazim who came to the region from other parts of the Soviet Union during Soviet rule and sometimes earlier, and the indigenous Bukharan community, which has its own Tajik-Jewish dialect, and which traces its roots back many centuries.
Bukharans account for almost the entire community in Samarkand.
Nearly all the Ashkenazim live in the capital, Tashkent, as do some 2,000 Bukharan Jews.
Bukharan Jews have made valiant efforts to preserve Jewish life, even in the face of pressure from the Soviet authorities, and intermarriage was almost unknown.
The community in Samarkand has a synagogue and enjoys the benefits of a Bukharan rabbi who is affiliated with the Chabad movement.
Bukharan Jews believe that Bukhara is actually Habor (II Kings 17:6), to which the ten tribes were exiled.
