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.
