THE JEWS OF SYRIA 1930-1967
Tuesday, March 6th at 7pm: The Syrian Sephardic Community

THE SYRIAN JEWISH COMMUNITY: OUR JOURNEY THROUGH HISTORY

THE JEWS OF SYRIA, 1930-1967

Directed by Lisa Ades

Executive Produced by Joseph J. Sitt

Documentary Feature, 90 min, USA, 2014, English



From Executive Producer, Joseph J. Sitt, the sixth installment of his multi-part series on the Syrian Sephardi community, is the fascinating story of life in Syria for the Jews who remained there after the massive exodus to the US and other countries in the early 1900s. Weaving together stories of pogroms and fires in Aleppo and Damascus in 1947 and 1948, of repression and heroic escapes as Jews in Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt fled persecution, the mysterious Aleppo Codex (part of which was smuggled to safety in Israel), the courageous Rabbi Abraham Kalmanowitz who helped Syrian boys escape to New York, and the Jewish spy, Elie Cohen, who helped his brothers in Israel win the Six Day War before his capture and execution, this is an incredible film about one of the Jewish Peoples oldest and most illustrious communities.
