Subject:DIWANIYYA PODCAST: Jews in Arab Lands
I am very pleased to present a new episode of Diwaniyya, the Moshe Dayan Center podcast: Jews in Arab Lands.
In the third installment of Diwaniyya's Minorities in the Middle East Series, three Moshe Dayan Center researchers discuss their personal experiences of Jewish communities in the Arab world. Ofra Bengio tells us about her childhood in Syria, and the journey she made with her family to Israel in the early 1950s. Esther Webman talks about her memories of Jewish life in Cairo, and what it was like for her cosmopolitan father to move to not-so-cosmopolitan 1950s Haifa. Samir Ben-Layashi tells us about growing up in the Jewish quarter of Meknes, Morocco.
