The Mystery of Jewish Djerba

Dr. Saul Zadka

Wednesday 13 March 2013, 8.00pm
£10 (£12 on the door)
Djerba is a unique island, off the Tunisian-Libyan coast, in which 1,200 Jews live in harmony with an Arab-Muslim community of 100,000 for centuries. They speak Hebrew to each other, tune to the Israeli radio every day, have modern Israeli names, and visit relatives in Israel on a regular basis. The community was shaken after the revolution, but despite calls from the Israeli government, only a handful chose to immigrate.

Dr. Saul Zadka spent a few festivals with the islanders, trying to trace their ancient roots.
