  Congregation Shearith Israel

Wednesday, February 26th at 7pm

8 W. 70th St. New York, NY 10023
Event starts at 7:00pm, doors open at 6:45pm


The discussion will include filmmaker Joseph Lovett’s personal inspiration to make this film, the current phenomenon, where that phenomenon fits into the history of the Jewish people and opportunities to explore these interests through the web, books, films and travel.  Also on the panel will be participants from the film Jose Barreiro, Anna Henriques and Carlos DeMedeiros.

Travel information on historically significant sites of the Diaspora will be on display for guests to explore.  Sefardic artwork by Brazilian artist Carlos DeMedeiros will provide a showcase for people to see his unique experience. Historically inspired hors d’oeuvres will be served by Edible Histories; with an international menu of food that reflects the diverse geographical reaches of the diaspora.

Your thoughts and ideas will be most welcome.

For more information on the event and to RSVP email  We hope to see you there!
