The Kerem House - Gedera 18, Tel Aviv,
The Jews of Iraq are one of the oldest Jewish communities worldwide, with a history spanning over a millennia. Join us for a sabih dinner and an award winning movie about Iraqi Jews (with English subtitles).
WHEN: Jan 12, 20:00
WHERE: Kerem House
Join us as we watch “The Dove Flyer”, a film based on the famous book by acclaimed Iraqi author Eli Amir, and get a glimpse into the lives of the Iraqi Jews during the 1950s. This touching coming-of-age film follows a young Jewish teenager in Baghdad at the time of the controversial and complicated process of the Iraqi Jews’ immigration to Israel.
Before the screening we’ll be serving up fresh Sabih, a traditional Iraqi Jewish pita sandwich consisting of chopped salad, fried eggplant, amba (pickled mango chutney), and boiled egg (can be left out if you’re vegan).
