This session focuses on the Jewish communities in Syria and Egypt. Hear from Jews from Aleppo and Damascus, and learn about the relatively newer community of Egypt that attracted Jewish migrants from both Europe and the Middle East.
Jewish communities which thrived for millennia in the Middle East and North Africa are today on the verge of extinction. These lectures will follow the project “Jews of the Middle East,” a series of oral history videos in Arabic documenting the personal stories of Jews who left their countries of origin. We will examine the diverse experiences, and discuss the diverse experience of Jewish communities in Arabic-speaking lands.
With Elhanan Miller, journalist and Middle East specialist.
