Thursday, May 18, 2023 27 Iyyar 5783

8:30 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

Join the Adult Education Committee's virtual presentation on "Facing West: The True Story of One Family’s Journey from India to Israel 1945-1955” with Rahel Musleah. The zoom program is on Thursday, May 18, at 8:30 p.m.

A vivid portrait of life in Palestine (Israel) on the brink of statehood, told through original letters and accompanied by archival photos, pioneer songs of the period, and Baghdadi-Indian Jewish songs (pizmonim) that express the yearning for Zion. A perennial reminder of what Israel means to us. 

Rahel Musleah was born in Calcutta, the seventh-generation of a Calcutta Jewish family that traces its roots to 17th-century Baghdad. Today, Rahel is a New York-based award-winning journalist, author, singer, speaker and educator. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, Hadassah magazine, and numerous other publications. Her publications include Apples and Pomegranates: A Family Seder for Rosh Hashanah; and a CD of Shabbat and holiday melodies, Hodu: Jewish Rhythms from Baghdad to India.
