Bukharian Split

Lengthy and better-than-usual piece in the Jewish Week on what the Borukhova trial has meant to the Bukharian community as a whole. It contains good insight into the enormity of the cultural transition this community has made in a short 20 years, for better and worse, and so much of it right here in Forest Hills.

If you think about it, change is hard on everyone–kids need time-space to transition, and so do most adults. Now consider this on a scale of 50,000 people with endless permutations of personal, social (esp. gender), and economic dynamics.
