In search of the last Jews of Yemen

Academic and journalist Dr Saul Zadka is one of the few Israelis to have visited Yemen. This small country at the tip of the Arabian peninsula is still home to 150 Jews, the remnant of a once-great community. They live precariously in a lawless society with a rampant gun culture. What does the future hold, not only for the Jewish community, but for Yemen in general?
Don’t miss Dr Zadka’s illustrated talk about his visit to Yemen on Sunday 7 May. The talk takes place in London’s West End and is being jointly organised by Harif (The Association of Jews from the Middle East and N. Africa) and Spiro Ark.
