Jewish Communities Of Africa: Old And New

Since the time of Abraham, Jews have had a presence in Africa. In this interactive presentation, Jono David will open a window on some of the oldest Jewish communities in the world: from the orthodox community of the Tunisian island of Djerba, to a yeshiva in the Congo! As well, we will visit emerging Black Jewish groups in Uganda, Cameroon and Ghana, by enjoying two short videos featuring African synagogues and Jewish life.

JONO DAVID
Jono David is an American-British independent photographer who, since the 1990s, has traveled the globe to amass what is perhaps the most extensive archive of contemporary images of Jewish heritage and heritage sites in the world – a growing compendium of more than 120,000 photographs from 116 countries and territories. His work has been exhibited at several museums including the Beit Hatfutsot Museum (Tel Aviv), the Irish Jewish Museum (Dublin), the South African Jewish Museum (Cape Town), the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre (Johannesburg), and the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center (Skokie, IL).

Jono resides in Tokyo where he lectures in English at several universities. His online Jewish photo archive is www.JewishPhotoLibrary.com.

Jono recently published two books, both available on Amazon: The Jews of Africa: Lost Tribes, Found Communities, Emerging Faiths and Life Before the Holocaust: Portraits of Character.
