Feel free to edit this list or discuss these tasks. I have changed the section of the article that claim bukarian jews "returned" to israel, because one can not return to a place they have never been. This is an encyclopedia not an arena to voice ones particular convictions. In any case, if you actually look at the edit in question diff , there's nothing wrong with it. As many problems as are caused by at least one of the people editing from that IP address, this is quite minor. In fact, I rather suspect that the reason nothing was said about the edit or the comment here at the time, was because the article actually reads better with that edit, despite the obnoxious rationale posted here on the talkpage.
Bukharian Wedding: A Feast of Culture and Tradition
Urban Dictionary: Bukharian
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 immigrated to Israel or to the United States especially Forest Hills, New York , while others have immigrated to Europe or Australia. The term Bukharan was coined by European travelers who visited Central Asia around the 16th century. Since most of the Jewish community at the time lived under the Emirate of Bukhara , they came to be known as Bukharan Jews. The name by which the community called itself is " Isro'il " Israelites. The appellative Bukharian was adopted by Bukharan Jews who moved to English-speaking countries, in an anglicisation of the Hebrew Bukhari.
The position of women in ancient India has been a very complicated one because of the paradoxical statements in different religious scriptures and sometimes in the same text at different places. The cultural history of India reveals that in India theoretically women enjoyed the status of devi goddess as described in many religious texts of Hindus, the majority community in India. Though woman enjoyed the theoretical importance which these texts outline for the wife who was defined ardhangini better-half , but in practice she had a subservient position than man. It was generally seen and believed that women had lower status with reference to power and influence than men in all spheres of life—family, community, religion and politics.
Queens, NY — The scene last weekend at the Second Annual Bukharian Jewish Community Legislative Breakfast was indicative of a community that has — in a staggeringly short period of time — come of age. It was held in the lavish reception hall of the Bukharian Jewish Community Center in the heart of Forest Hills, home to some 50, Jews who moved en masse less than 20 years ago from the storied ancient cities of Samarkand, Tashkent and Bukhara in Uzbekistan to the more prosaic Queens neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Kew Gardens and Rego Park. Seated at a long dais beneath gold-trimmed mahogany carvings with biblical themes were the top leaders of the Bukharian Jewish community. They were beaming and holding up plaques as they received the plaudits of a procession of local political figures, including State Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith and Queens Borough President Helen Marshall. Yet despite the palpable sense conveyed at the breakfast of a community that is prosperous and self-assured, a dark cloud hovered over the event.
