Virtual Tour of Jewish Iraq

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning, Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA)

Join My Jewish Learning and Jewish Telegraphic Agency for a tour of Jewish Iraq, where Jews have lived continuously for more than 2,000 years. Prior to 1941, when a pro-Nazi pogrom shattered the community, 40% of Baghdad’s population was Jewish. Our guide, who was born in the Jewish quarter of Baghdad, will share his personal story as well as the rich history of the Jews of Iraq.
