Description
Who were the Khazars? How did they live? Why should we care? This class will set out to start answering these and other questions. The Khazars stood as a bulwark to stop the expansion of the Islam into Europe in the 9th and 10th century. These red-haired, green eyed Jews practiced a religious and social tolerance and equality unprecedented in medieval Europe, or for that matter, modern Europe.
