Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the opening address by Haggai Ben Shammai at the International Colloquium on the Khazars, The Israel Academy of Sciences and the Humanities 24 May 1999. The subject of the actual history of the Khazars has attracted renewed public interest in Israel in recent years. The profound philosophical religious dialogue between the legendary Khazar king and the Jewish Rabbi, or odd genealogical theories got wide attention. The speaker hopes that this book will be a starting point to renew, inter-disciplinary research of the Khazars.

Keywords: Haggai Ben Shammai; Jewish Rabbi; Khazars
