Jewish Museum presents Sephardi Voices: An Evening with Professor Henry Green
January 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join the Jewish Museum for a special evening with Professor Henry Green, author of Sephardic Voices: The Untold Story of the Expulsion of Jews from Arab Lands in conversation with Rabbi Daniel Hadar of Temple Moses.
Henry Green through photographs and story telling, has captured the voices and faces of the still-living generation of Jews who have experienced firsthand-as children and adults- the great uprooting from their homelands in Africa and the Middle East in the twentieth century. This book puts front and center the ongoing stories of Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews who have lost so much, struggled, and yet rebuilt rich meaningful lives in their new homelands.
Henry Green is Professor of Religious Studies and the former Director of Judaic and Sephardic Studies at the University of Miami, Florida. He is the Founding Director of Sephardi Voices, an audio-visual digital archive of Arab Jews. He has served as a Visiting Fellow at Oxford University and at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and has given testimony to the USA Congressional Human Rights Caucus as an advocate for the rights of those displaced.
