Jewish Yemenite Traditions in Israel

Hosted By: Jewish Study Center

In many Jewish Arab traditions, a Henna ceremony is celebrated with the bride before her wedding as a rite of passage to married life. In this talk, Avia Halev, an Israeli of Yemenite descent, will share her family’s immigration story within the context of the Jewish Yemenite community in Israel. Avia will share their traditions while she recounts her personal story of preparing for her own Henna ceremony in Israel. She will further elaborate on Jewish Yemenite traditions and customs and the ways they are maintained by the community in Israel until this day.
