A hundred and fifty ancient Jewish scrolls founding northern Afghanistan have recently been discovered, creating a storm among scholars who say the find reveals a little known aspect of medieval Jewry. Dating from the 11th Century, and found in Afghanistan's Samangan province, the documents were probably smuggled out.
