From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Karaim, from the Hebrew word קראים, meaning "readers", refers in the literal sense generally to practitioners of Karaite Judaism. In customary usage, however, it is often used to refer to the distinct Turkic-speaking Karaite community of Crimea and the related community of Karaites living in Lithuania and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, as well as to their language. For more information see:

  3. Karaite Judaism, a Jewish movement.
