In 2014, the State of Israel designated Nov. 30 as the National Day for Commemorating the Flight and Expulsion of Jews from Arab Lands and Iran. Join us for the official observance of this day, which will include a recent, highly acclaimed documentary film, “Remember Baghdad,” as well as the personal account of a local Iraqi Jew forced to flee his native land.

“There is a potency and pungency to this absorbing documentary.”
The Guardian
