Jews believed to first settle in Georgia after the destruction of the first temple in 586 B.C.
Here, Jews have been living together with Georgians for over 26 centuries. Most of the time it was and still is a peaceful and comfortable coexistence.
Writers and historians underline that Georgians always felt their honor and their moral duty to welcome Jews, because their beloved royal dynasty of Bagrationi is considered to be of Jewish origin.
