Introduction / History

There are two Jewish people groups in the Crimean Tatar region; the Crimean Karaites, and the Ashkenazi Jews. The Crimean Karaites are probably at least partially descended from Jews that settle near the Black Sea during the Greek Empire. Jewish people often lived among the Greeks in Greek colonies. Hundreds of years later, when Crimea belonged to the Greek-oriented Byzantine Empire, Jewish merchants moved into the area.


Where Are they Located?

These Jewish people live in Crimea, a peninsula in southern Ukraine. Members of these communities have also migrated to Georgia, Russia, Uzbekistan, Israel, or the United States.


What Are Their Lives Like?

These people have faced persecution off and on through the centuries. A couple of years ago, someone painted a swastika on their synagogue. In terms of what they do for a living, there is little that we know.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Most of the Karaites are Orthodox, which means that they take the Old Testament scriptures very seriously. It can also give them reason to try to stay away from people of other faiths. Yet, if believers can break through this wall, they can discuss the meaning of the OT prophets who pointed the way to Jesus.


What Are Their Needs?

These Jewish people need acceptance from God. The only way they can be accepted by God is to go through the Son of Man, Jesus Christ.
