The Remarkable Life of Flora Sassoon
Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)
Professor Shalva Weil, an expert in India’s Jewish communities, will present the remarkable story of Flora Sassoon, a successful businesswoman, philanthropist, and possibly a pioneering religious feminist. The event focuses on Sassoon’s journey from Baghdad to London via Bombay and her influential role as the ‘first lady chairman’ of Jews’ College, including her notable speech in 1924. Weil will reflect on the enduring impact of Sassoon’s speech and its relevance a century later.
