Nostalgia: Remembering the Jewish Community in Egypt

Hosted By: Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University

In this lecture, Alon Tam explores the history of different nostalgias that have been created around the Jewish community in Egypt since its demise in the middle of the 20th century.

How have Egyptian Jews remembered and commemorated their lives in Egypt from the places they migrated to? How have these memories been shaped by different political, social, and cultural interests, agendas, and historical developments? How have these memories changed over time, right until the present? This lecture will try to answer some of those questions.
