Ashkenazi Jewish

The Ashkenazim are a European Jewish diaspora who trace their communal origins to Germany and France, and later to the eastward migration towards Poland and the Slavic countries. Because of traditional marriage practices and segregation from surrounding cultures, the Ashkenazi Jewish population is genetically very closely knit.

Sephardic Jewish - North African

The North African Sephardic Jews are part of the broad “Mizrahi” Jewish population, and include those known collectively as “Maghrebi Jews,” acknowledging the “western” locale of their heritage, from Morocco, Algeria, Libya, and Tunisia.

Mizrahi Jewish - Iranian/Iraqi

Jews have been living in the historical Persian Empire for more than 2,700 years, exiled by both the Babylonians and Assyrians to what was called "the ends of the earth," today's Iran and Iraq. Some scholars include Mizrahim in the broadest definition of Sephardim, but there is no connection to Iberian origin, although similarities exist in liturgy, food and other cultural aspects.

Yemenite Jewish

Yemenite Jews form a separate ethnic community, third in size to the Ashkenazi and Sephardic groups, and they maintain some of the oldest preserved Jewish customs. According to tradition, Jews first arrived in Yemen when they were exiled following the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem. Archeological evidence shows that there was a large Jewish community present in Yemen over 2300 years ago.

Ethiopian Jewish

Traditional accounts of the origins of the Ethiopian Jews variously place them as descendants of the Biblical Tribe of Dan, or the offspring of a union between King Solomon of Israel and the Ethiopian Queen of Sheba.The community has been practicing a unique form of Judaism for approximately two millennia, including adherence to strict dietary laws, observance of the Sabbath, a priestly tradition, and veneration of scripture in the ancient Ge’ez language.
