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.

$5 suggested donation at the door.

This event is supported in part by the Sally & Irving Korobkin Educational Fund
