In the the Lands of Sultans, Kings, and Pharaohs: The Jewish Odyssey in Three Islamic Realms

Thursdays, July 13 & 20, and Sunday, July 23, 6:30-7:30 pm

In our July series with Dr. David Mendelsohn, academic program supervisor of Kivunim, we journey through the rich and complex history of Jewish existence in three iconic Muslim realms: the grand Ottoman Empire, the enduring Monarchy of Morocco, and the ancient land of Egypt. Dr. Mendelsohn will provide an immersive exploration into how Jewish communities didn't merely survive, but flourished under the rule of the Sultans, Kings, and Pharaohs. With an emphasis on the fusion of faiths, culture, and enduring resilience, we'll delve into the dynamics of coexistence, adaptation, and prosperity, offering a nuanced perspective on these historical periods. Don't miss this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the indelible imprint Jewish communities have left on these regions, shaping their diasporic narratives across centuries. This program is presented by the Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program and sponsored by the TBS Adult Learning Committee. Questions? Contact Adult Learning.
