Vostok (Uzbekistan / Bukharan )

A bit of Jewish Uzbekistan in Brooklyn.

"Uzbek Jews have two distinct communities; the more religious and traditional Bukharan Jewish community and the more progressive, European-in-origin Ashkenazi community." (wiki).

These Jewish people from the Caucasus tend towards the Czech beer Krusovice, as I have seen this in Azerbaijan venues frequented by Bukharian Jews.

A plate of herring and Lox, went well to orient me to the practices of the Jewish people from the region of Central Asia known as Kavkazia. It also went nicely with the Czech beer Krusovice.

I think this represents the Bukharan Jews, if I am correct in saying.

Bukhar was the Jewish capital, meaning the main area for Jewish people who lived in Central Asia. It is located in Kazakhstan.

" Bukhar-Zhyrau District (Kazakh: Бұқар жырау ауданы) is a district of Karagandy Province in central Kazakhstan " (wikipedia)
