Edwin Black on the Farhud for Congretation Ohav Zedek

Mon, 06/21/2021 - 7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Hundreds of innocent men, women, and children brutally attacked, their homes and shops burned, in the heinous June 1–2, 1941 Arab-Nazi pogrom in Baghdad. This was beginning of the end of Iraqi Jewry. Farhud means “violent dispossession.” But could it happen again—even in the US.

You are invited by Congregation Ohav Zedek of Wilkes-Barre with Temple Israel and the Jewish Community Alliance, plus Beth Sholom Scranton, Sons of Israel, Kesher Israel, and others. There will be a live reception and refreshments at Ohav Zedek for the big screen event.
