Events at Magen David
Jews From Egypt
Presentation By Irene Buenavida
Author of "No Return"
Tuesday MAY 10, 2016 at 7pm
When Irene Buenavida retired after a 40-year career with the Toronto Dominion Bank, she embarked on a project to trace and list Jewish families from Egypt living in Montreal. She succeeded in locating 500 families-approximately 3000 people. That is what inspired her to write her book and to establish Montreal's first Association of Jews from Egypt. Egypt, particularly Cairo and Alexandria, was a multicultural crossroads. She herself is a typical example: her father was Iraqi, from Baghdad, and her mother's family originated in Morocco. She left Egypt in 1966, and emigrated to Montreal. Through her own story , she documents the rich history and culture of the Jews of Egypt.
Light refreshments will be served.
