Portrait at the synagogue

This man is one of the last remaining Jews of Kutaisi. Kutaisi used to have a large jewish community and had at least 3 synagogues.

Most of the jewish inhabitants went to Israel after Georgia's independence. There were some who longed for Georgia and came back.

Most of the Georgians Jews went to the Israeli town of Ashdod.
