My Mother's Spice Cupboard - A Journey from Baghdad to Bombay to Bondi

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"If you don't speak Yiddish, what kind of a Jew are you?" This was the question asked of Elana Benjamin's mother soon after emigrating from her native India. This session draws on material from Elana's memoir/history about the Baghdadi Jews of Bombay - My Mother's Spice Cupboard (2012) - with the aim of raising awareness and generating discussion about the experiences of Iraqi-Sephardi Jewry.
