We are pleased to invite you to join and embark on a walking tour of several fascinating neighborhoods in Queens, NY; also known as Registan Park (Rego Park) and Bukharian Broadway (Forest Hills).

Learn about the Jewish community that has lived along the Silk Road for over 2000 years. Look at periods of Jewish emigration from Central Asia, and visit the one and only Bukharian Jewish Museum to understand the essence of the Bukharian Jewish culture.

Together we will attempt to recreate the atmosphere of the time, and learn about the everyday life of Bukharian immigrants, their hardships, and hopes, their failures, and achievements.

The tour will conclude with a traditional lunch.

Tour will include:

  • Visit to the Bukharian Jewish Museum
  • Walking tour of the neighborhood
  • Visit to synagogue
  • Lunch at the Bukharian Restaurant (Glatt Kosher -VHQ)

This walking tour is in English and/or Russian.
