Karaimite Jews are Karaite Jews who began to pretend to be only [[Karaimites ]] from 1795 in order to gain privileges from Catherine the Great. In the 19th century, their leader Sima Babovich employed Avraham Firkovich as a teacher to their children in order to learn how to imitate the ways of the Karaimites.
However, the Karaimite Jews maintained a distinction between themselves and the real Karaimites until Seraya Shapshal began to breach the boundaries. Subsequently they expelled Seraya Shapshal in 1919 because of his friendliness towards real Karaimites.
