Sephardi Voices UK: Sharing the Stories of Sephardi Jews in Britain

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Sephardi Voices UK documents the testimonies of Jews from the Middle East, North Africa and Iran who now live in the United Kingdom. Our filmed interviews document the fascinating history, rich culture and vibrant traditions of the communities our interviewees left behind. Our work allows the families of our interviewees to connect with their past, whilst simultaneously allowing both researchers and members of the general public a window into the histories of these unique communities.

Less than 10% of British Jews have their roots in the Middle East, North Africa or Iran. Despite this relatively small number, Middle Eastern, North African and Iranian Jews have made a large impact on British society. Amongst our interviewees are prominent business people, authors, artists, politicians, musicians, physicians, Rabbis and philanthropists.

In this lecture we will introduce the SVUK archive, and learn about the lives of our interviewees who arrived in the UK throughout the latter half of the 20th century. We will explore the impact of this migration on their lives, and the mark they have in turn made on Anglo Jewry.

With Dr Bea Lewkowicz and Daisy Abboudi.

The talk is part of the National Library of Israel series: “In Her Majesty’s Kingdom – Celebrating the Rich History of Anglo-Jewry”.
