There are some 300-500 Jews living in Armenia today, but make no mistake about it- Armenia is a country in which Jewish presence goes many centuries back.
This is a center of Jewish community of Armenia, center of Chabad and also synagogue on second floor. It is headed by the Chief Rabbi of Armenia Gershon Burstein.
On time of our visit during Jewish holiday Sukkot there were 2 women praying in synagogue and rabbi only. Yerevan community is very small, and even on high holidays there is so little presence in prayers as a rabbi explain to us. We were invited for a Kiddush blessing in Sukkah afterwards and we had a interesting conversation with rabbi of the community about Jewish life in such a remote place.
For me personally it was emotional visit.
