The Museum of Mountain Jews is located in the old restored
Karchogy synagogue, which was closed in the Soviet period. The initiative of establishment
of the Museum of Mountain Jews belongs
to the natives of the Red Village - God Nisanov, Zarakh Iliev and German
Zakharyaev. The creation of a common concept and collection of exhibits was
handled by the International Charitable Fund “STMEGI”- the largest organization
uniting Mountain Jews from all over the world.
