The Khazaria Info Center, established on May 5, 1995 by Kevin Alan Brook, author of The Jews of Khazaria (1st edition, 1999), is the leading Internet provider of information about the Khazar Kingdom.

Medieval Kingdom of Khazaria, 650-1016

Over a thousand years ago, the far east of Europe was ruled by Jewish kings who presided over numerous tribes, including their own tribe: the Khazars. After their conversion, the Khazar people used Jewish personal names, spoke and wrote in Hebrew, were circumcised, had synagogues and rabbis, studied the Torah and Talmud, and observed Hanukkah, Pesach, and the Sabbath.
