Shalom, everyone! The following is a video presentation by “Neglected History” of the history of the Khazar Khaganate (Khazar Empire) and their subsequent conversion to Judaism in the 8th century CE. The Khazars were Turkic nomads who once roamed the steppes of Central Asia. They are descendants of Noah‘s eldest son Japheth. They are specifically descended from Japheth‘s first son Gomer, through Gomer‘s sons Ashkenaz and Togarmah. The descendants of the Khazars are today known as the Ashkenazim (Ashkenazi Jews), who make up about 75% percent of the Jewish population today. For more information on the descendants of Japheth, please read our post “Origins: The Generations of Noah: The Sons of Japheth”:
This little known empire dominated the Caucasus and Pontiac steppes while becoming extremely wealthy through it’s taxation on the silk road. I’m here to tell you about really the only Jewish Empire in History.
