It’s Young JW3's Season of Love, and we’re spending the evening focusing on the love we have for our grandparents with Sephardi Voices UK.
We are excited to be joined by three incredible Jews from Egypt, Iraq and Morocco, who will be interviewed by their grandchildren about their experiences and history. We will hear from Doris Hugh (born in Egypt) and her grandson Gil Tydeman; Esther Aitman (born in Morocco) and her grandson Cobi Aitman, and Yelyam Abraham (born in Aden, Yemen) and his niece Claudia Mendoza.
This evening will be an exciting opportunity to hear about what life was like for Jewish people in these countries and what their life now looks like in the UK.
This event is generously supported by Genesis Philanthropy Group.
About Sephardi Voices UK
Sephardi Voices UK is a charity with the mission to record and amplify the testimonies and experiences of the Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews from the Middle East, North Africa and Iran who settled in the UK.
Our work is of utmost importance to the wider story of British Jewry, allowing researchers and members of the general public a window into the rich past of our interviewees.
As well as contributing to the national archive, we also provide our interviewees with the opportunity to create a lasting, professionally filmed testimony of their lives that they will be able to share with their children, grandchildren and generations to come.
Our films, events and resources provide a vital educational role, allowing us to share our interviewees stories. We want to ensure Sephardi and Mizrahi history is freely available, easily accessible and fully integrated within the history of the Jewish people.
