Sun 8 September 2019, 11 am, part of B’nai B’rith Heritage Days. With the exodus of 99 percent 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?) Presentation by Lyn Julius of Harif. Holland Park Synagogue, 8 St James’s Gardens, London W11 4RB.
