Spanning from the communitys origins--which many Afghan Jews believe to be from biblical times--to the development of their Jewish communal institutions, From Kabul to Queens details the story of a small Jewish community that lived in relative peace with its Sunni Muslim neighbors. Sara Y. Aharon compellingly bridges the Jews experiences in Afghanistan to their successes and struggles in rebuilding a new life in the United States and among American Jewish society. With new colored photographs of Afghanistans Jewish sites, including synagogue renovations in the 21st century, this thought-provoking book will grab your attention and never let it go.
