Don't miss the first ever Jews from Arab Countries Week, which runs from 14th to 20th November 2005. A new UK association representing Jews from the Middle East and North Africa, HARIF, is organising events at various London venues to promote the history, culture and heritage of the Mizrahim.
As well as oriental music and food, there will be a rare opportunity to hear the Egyptian-born historian Bat Ye'or speak on Jewish-Muslim relations. The Iraqi-born Israeli novelist Eli Amir will also be giving a lecture. The premiere of the David Project film,"The Forgotten Refugees" will be followed by a discussion with a distinguished panel. The little-known story of the deportation of North African Jews to Nazi death camps will also be told.
Advance booking is essential for all events. For full details visit the HARIF website.
