  2. To provide suggestions for further research about the Khazars - including books, articles, and webpages.
  3. To encourage further scholarship in Khazar, Volga Bulgar, and Armenian Jewish studies by working with present and future authors, historians, geneticists, archaeologists, journalists, linguists, ethnologists, and genealogists to promote their research and assist in publishing endeavors.
  4. To encourage college/university, theological, public, private, museum, high school, and Jewish/JCC/synagogue libraries around the world to purchase English, Hebrew, and Russian books having pertinence to research of the Khazars, so that current and future generations can learn more about the Khazars.
