'Who owns Jewish heritage in the Middle East?'

Sunday 8th September at 11am in The Suzanne Dellal Hall.

'Who owns Jewish heritage in the Middle East?'

With the exodus of 99% of the Middle East’s Jewish population, the thorny question remains: what happens to the communal property they left behind? Community registers in Egypt. Torah scrolls in Yemen. The tug-of-war over the Iraqi-Jewish archive, now in the US but claimed by Iraq. Who owns the heritage of now-defunct Jewish communities in Arab countries? Is it the exiled Jews, or is it part of a country’s national heritage?

An illustrated talk by our very own Lyn Julius. Come and listen to this fascinating talk and also welcome visitors to our beautiful synagogue on the Bnai Brith Open Day. Please telephone the office to let us know you are coming, 0207 603 7961
