Thrusday-Night Program: Jews of the Arab Countries
January 18, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Jews of the Arab Countries
(A presentation by Joseph Levy)
Mr. Levy – lawyer, teacher, author and speaker – emigrated to the U.S. in 1958 as a toddler with his largely Sephardic family from Cairo, Egypt in what he calls the Second Jewish Exodus from Egypt. He has done extensive research on the Jewish refugees from the Arab countries, the largely forgotten people of the longstanding Arab-Israeli dispute. After a general look at Jewish history in Arab lands, he will focus specifically on 20th Century Jewish life in Egypt.
