Name: LECTURE WITH Q&A Leaving Yemen and Becoming Israeli
Date: November 29, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
Event Description:
Join Ari Ariel from the University of Iowa’s History of Modern Middle East to discuss how Jews began leaving Yemen to immigrate to Ottoman Palestine (later Israel) as early as the 1880s, and how their migration continued until recent years.  In this lecture, Ari Ariel examines the strategies this group has used to maintain connections with Yemen, and to resist pressures to assimilate into the wider Israel society, while also working to integrate in their new homes. Their dynamic ritual-practice, dance, music, and foodways will all be explored.
