    Bukharan Jews, also Bukharian Jews or Bukhari Jews, (Persian: یهودی بخارایی, Russian: Бухарские евреи, Hebrew: בוכרים‎: Bukharim, Tajik and Bukhori Cyrillic: яҳудиёни бухороӣ (Bukharan Jews) or яҳудиёни Бухоро (Jews of Bukhara)), also called the Binai Israel,[1] are Jews from Central Asia who speak Bukhori, a dialect of the Tajik language. Their name comes from the former Central Asian Emirate of Bukhara, which once had a sizable Jewish community. Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the great majority have emigrated to Israel or to the United States (especially Forest Hills, New York), while others have emigrated to Europe or Australia.
