Judeo-Hamedani is a Central Iran dialect, spoken by the Jewish community living in Hamadan, in western Iran. The first records of Jewish communities in this region date to approximately 750 BC.
Like most Jewish languages, Judeo-Hamedani is written using Hebrew characters. The language contains a large number of Hebrew and Kurdish loanwords.
Following the decline and consolidation of the Persian Jewish community in the mid-20th century, while many Judeo-Persian languages fell into disuse, Judeo-Hamedani has maintained a tenuous foothold, among the remaining Jewish community in Hamadan as well as in the expatriate communities in Israel and the United States.
