Azerbaijan has attracted various tribes and peoples since ancient times - Jewish Heritage in Azerbaijan ( First Part)

 Azerbaijan has long been home to many different ethnic groups. One such group is the Mountain Jews, descendants of Jewish people who migrated from Persia to the Caucus mountains hundreds of years ago.


Jewish heritage in Azerbaijan is represented by several monuments in Baku, Quba, Oghuz, Ismayilli, and other parts of Azerbaijan. Many ruins of ancient synagogues have been found in different parts of the country.

The Prisma multicultural newspaper published interesting article that identifies multiculturalism concept

                         Multiculturalism, from a binary concept to a plural one

                                                                 Teresa Whitney, Rochelle Burgess

People get hung up on labels and flounder when someone or something doesn’t fit into existing categories – the struggle to define multiculturalism in the UK is a prime example. Pinning this word down has proven to be difficult, and has been increasingly associated with religion, and with Muslims in particular.

It’s time to confront an uncomfortable truth: you are a cognitive miser. But you’re in good company – so is every other person on earth. What it boils down to is that people are lazy.

People don’t have the time to ask everyone for all of the information that they need, so they use symbols and history to fill in the gaps. Others are placed into groups because it enables individuals to mentally handle the complexities of the world. New information is placed into existing mental maps (schema).
