Jewish Tunisia: At a Crossroads of Civilizations
Hosted By: Qesher
Explore Tunisia’s diverse Jewish culture and its contemporary Jewish community, in this virtual tour from Qesher.
Tunisia, the former seat of Cartaghe’s empire, has been home to different Jewish communities for more than 2000 years. Its central location at a crossroads of civilizations led to multiple influences in food, culture, language and identity. Rafram will take us through the different elements of the complex Jewish layer of Tunisia, which took a fateful turn in 1967 after the Six-Day War. Rafram will talk about how Jewish life looks today in Tunisia and about his work as a visual artist, which blends biography and Jewish identity in contemporary Tunisia.
This talk is live and interactive, the number of participants is limited. With your contribution to Qesher you will also be donating to the upkeep of the Jewish cemetery of Tunis.
