Come trace the footsteps of Jacqueline Shohet Kahanoff, a long-overlooked Mizrahi writer and intellectual. Following her across the globe from her birthplace of Cairo, director Rafael Balulu provides a penetrating portrait of a thinker who was the first in Israel to call for the recognition of a "Levantine" identity rooted in the culture of Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews.

Servants of Solomon: the Jews of Palmyra and Ancient Christianity in Asia

A vibrant commercial center and a nexus point for human movement and contact, ancient Palmyra (modern Tadmur, Syria) ostensibly played no role in the eastward movement of Christianity even as various of its inhabitants adopted Judaism. This talk explores the social relations that underpinned this phenomenon.

RSVP here. Seating is limited.
