Pilgrimage to Djerba 2022
31 May @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Tuesday 31 May 2022. 7:30 pm UK time. The traditional Lag Ba’ Omer pilgrimage to the historic Al-Griba synagogue in Djerba this year drew numbers of visitors almost back to pre-COVID levels. Tour guide and historian Nigel Grizzard was among them. He will share his thoughts and impressions of the occasion, and of Tunisia in general, in a richly-illustrated presentation. How can Tunisia interest its former Jewish citizens into re-discovering their heritage? Recording here.
Please note that Lyn Julius’s talk ‘ The Colonial Era in the MENA: A Golden Age? ‘has been postponed to a later date
