Temple Emanuel member, Velda Shaby, will share her family story of exile and identity, their flight from Bagdad to Iran and then America. Two sessions: December 10 & 17, 2015 8-9:30pm
Sessions include the film, “The Dove Flyer” about the anguish of losing a homeland and dismantling the 2000 year-old community of Iraqi Jews. Velda will explore Biblical texts that reflect the Jewish People’s experience of exile and return, and share her memories of growing up in the vibrant Jewish community of Tehran, Iran, in the 1950s and 1960s.
