Iraqi Kurdistan: A Land of Jewish Heritage, and Potential Reconciliation

Hosted By: Qesher

From the Neo-Assyrian era to the present day, learn about the Jews from Kurdistan. There are hundreds of thousands of Kurdish Jews who look to their ancestral fatherland with affection, interest, and curiosity. The Kurdistan Region of Iraq is celebrated as one of the most durable, stable, tolerant, and secure governments in the entire Middle East. Learn more about Kurdistan, its Jewish heritage, and the present-day efforts to support Jewish expression.

This talk is live and interactive, the number of participants is limited. With your contribution to Qesher you will also be donating to the “Foundation of Ours”, which supports Jewish expression in the Kurdistan Region, and provides platforms for reconciliation and coexistence between all communities.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
