Jews in Georgia

A photo essay

Comments Off on Jews in Georgia

JDocu is a group of amateur photographers, friends who know each other from Israel’s thriving high-tech world. They have set themselves the task of documenting Jewish communities around the world. These pictures are from the photographers’ journey to Georgia, in the former Soviet Union, to document what is left of the Jewish community there after the exodus of Jews from the region that began in the 1970s.

The photographs were first exhibited at Beit Hatfutsot: The Museum of the Jewish People, in Tel Aviv, in March 2012, with support from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and the Jewish Funders Network.
