List of Asian Jews

This page is a list of Jews.

Since Antiquity, a number of Jewish communities have been established in many parts of Asia migrating or fleeing eastward from their mythological place of origin in Mesopotamia. Some examples of ancient Jewish communities nin Asia are: In Iran (Persian Jews) and Kurdistan; the Gruzim and Juhurim of the Caucasus; the Bene Israel, the Baghdadi Jews and the Cochin Jews of India (Jews in India); and the Bukharan Jews of Uzbekistan.
