Greeted With Smiles

Upon immigration to New York at the end of the twentieth century, Bukharian Jews encountered a landscape defined by multiculturalist “mosaic” ideologies. Through music, Bukharian Jews and other ‘new New Yorkers’ sought to define themselves as a distinct ethnic group in relation to the questions of identity, ethnicity, and nationality they perceived. Their choices reflect a broader shift from a “melting pot” assimilationist ideology to pluralistic “mosaic” ideology among Jewish Americans; however, they still engage the legacy of the melting pot and the desire to adapt to broader American and Jewish identities.
