The mission of the Mountain Jews Museum is multifaceted. Primarily it is to acquaint all those interested in a unique mini-civilization, combining the achievements of Jewish culture and cultures of the peoples of the Caucasus. The museum aims to broadcast universal human values, and thereby we hope will serve not only as a source of knowledge about the material and spiritual culture of Mountain Jews, but will also provide a space for interethnic and inter-religious dialogue. The doors of the museum will be open to anyone who is willing to share our values, regardless of nationality or religion. The Mountain Jews Museum is located in the old restored Karchogi synagogue which was closed during the Soviet years. The initiative to create a museum of the Mountain Jews is from natives of the 'Red Village,' God Nisanov, Zarakh Iliev, and German Zakharyaev. The creation of a common concept and collection of exhibits was carried out by the International Charitable Fund STMEGI - the largest organization uniting Mountain Jews of the whole world.

Travel with an expert! Come join me on an exploration of the Jewish history in the region of the famous Jewish village.
