"A well-researched and valuable study of the ancient but now-vanished Jewish community of Afghanistan, a little known community often overlooked by many Western scholars...Ms. Aharon's well-written study is an important contribution to the recognition of its existence, its history, and its role in the commerce of the famous Silk Road. As archeologists uncover more evidence of that history, future scholars will find her study of significant value."
―ROSANNE KLASS, author of Land of the High Flags: Afghanistan When the Going Was Good and former New York Times reporter on Afghanistan
