Carpets, Textiles and Kiss-Me-Quick hats: the Sephardim of Yorkshire
15 June 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Tuesday 15 June, 7:30 pm UK time. Leeds-based Nigel Grizzard, Yorkshire’s Jewish Heritage and Tour Guide, has been delving into the Sephardi history of England’s largest county: the Turkish merchants who established a Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue in Leeds, the Sephardi Rabbonim who still serve in Yorkshire, the deportation of Leeds Sephardi Jews on the infamous ship the Dunera to Australia during WW2, the exodus from Egypt in 1956 and the housing of Jewish refugees in Horsforth, the settlement of four generations of Baghdadi Jews in the seaside town of Scarborough – and much more!
