In Central Asia, the community attempted to preserve their traditions while displaying loyalty to the government.World War II and the Holocaust brought a lot of Ashkenazi Jewish refugees from the European regions of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe through Uzbekistan.Around 1620, the first synagogue was constructed at Bukhara city, this was done in contravention of the law prescribed to Caliph Omar who forbade the construction of new non-Muslim places of worship including synagogues as well as forbade the destruction of those that existed in the pre-Islamic period.
