Santa Fe  Jewish Film Festival Presents
Sunday, January 12 at 11 am at CCA
"The history of the Jews from Arab/Muslim countries is not well known," said Marcia Torobin, Director of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival. " REMEMBER BAGHDAD follows five Baghdadi families who led vibrant lives but were ultimately forced or who felt it was necessary to leave the only home they knew. Their story is similar to that of the 800,000 Jews who lived in Arab/Muslim countries but no longer do. Why did they leave? Where did they go? REMEMBER BAGHDAD helps us understand what happened."     505-216-0672  

Ruth Halperin-Kaddari, Israeli legal scholar, trail-blazing religious feminist, and expert on family law, feminist critique of law, and women's rights in Israel, will speak at Temple Beth Shalom on January 12, 2020. Her topic is, "The Different Feminism in Israel: Where we came from, where we're going, what ground was won, challenges ahead, and present setbacks." The talk, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 4 p.m.
