During two days of unprecedented brutality on Shavuot 1941, hundreds of innocent Jews were murdered in Iraq, with many more injured, women raped and businesses, stores and homes looted and destroyed.
It was the beginning of the end for a community that had existed for over 2,700 years and the first of a number of violent episodes leading to the destruction of the ancient Jewish communities of the Arab world.
Please join us for this important commemoration, supported by 27 organisations, which will feature the Hon. Irwin Cotler and Rabbi Joseph Dweck. Other speakers are David Khedher Basson, Cantor Daniel Benlolo, Yvonne Green, Bea Lewkowicz, Rabbi Maimon Pinto, Efraim Sadka, Shimon Samuels, Yair Szlak and Eta Yudin. (Artwork by Nissim Zalayet)
