Jewish Silk Road Tours™: Bukharian Community Tour in Rego Park
November 18, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
We would love to invite you to join and embark on a walking tour of the Queens, NY; also known as Registan Park (Rego Park) and Bukharian Broadway.
Learn about the Jewish community that had lived along the Silk Road, for over 2000 years. Look at the period of Jewish emigration from Central Asia, and visit one and only Bukharian Jewish Museum to understand the essence of the Bukharian Jewish culture.
Together we will attempt to recreate the atmosphere of that time, and learn about the everyday life of the immigrants, their hardships, and hopes, their failures, and achievements.
The tour will conclude with a traditional lunch and a mini-concert at the local Bukharian restaurant!
Tour will include:
- Visit the one and only Bukharian Jewish Museum in the world
- Walking tour of the neighborhood
- Visiting the synagogue(s)
- Lunch at the Bukharian Restaurant (Glatt Kosher -VHQ)
This Walking Tour is in English and/or Russian.
Tickets: $59 per person includes a meal, entertainment, tour and transportation.
