Jews of Algeria: French, Indigenous, or Both?

Hosted By: Qesher

Join Qesher for an overview of the history of Jews of Algeria before, during, and after the French presence there. Sixty years have passed since the mass exodus of Jews from Algeria. Of all the Jews who fled Arab countries, the Algerians were unusual: they held French nationality, although the community was indigenous. Was there something inherently antisemitic about Muslim culture in Algeria? Or were Jews and Muslims divided by the French colonial government? In this talk, learn about these issues while learning about the unique history and culture of the Algerian Jews.

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.
