The Yemenite Jews: Returning Home
Rabbi Savenor and Paul Liptz
Wed / Jul 29 / 12:00 pm
From exquisite jewelry-making and embroidery to exotic dance steps, Yemenite Jews brought their unique culture to Israel beginning in the 1880s and through the dramatic “Operation Magic Carpet” in 1949. Social historian Paul Liptz teaches modern Jewish and Israeli history, with a particular interest in the history of the Yishuv (Pre-State Israel).
