Buchari Kippah

Buchari Kippah is probably one of the most of obvious signs of belonging to this very special Jewish community of Central Asia. Not all of the kippot made in Asia are Buchari kippot. Buchari kippah is worn by the Jews of Bukhara that trace their origin all way back to the Israelites who never came back from Babylonian Exile. Bukharian Jews, whose name comes from the ancient emirate of Bokhara, hail from Uzbekistan and its neighboring five Central Asian republics sometimes referred to as the "five Stans"
