The Israel Support Committee of Central New Jersey invites the community to attend the New Jersey premiere of the documentary “Starting Over Again.”
Egypt had a thriving Jewish community for centuries, that ultimately grew to 75,000. The community was destroyed by anti-Semitism and Arab nationalism in little more than 10 years, forcing the Jews to leave their homes. This epic film tells the story of Egyptian Jews, many prosperous professionals and merchants, who became expelled refugees, forced to start over again in new countries. Viviane Acker Levy, herself an Egyptian Jewish refugee, will share her experiences after the movie.
This documentary will be screened at Temple Beth El/Mekor Chayim, 338 Walnut Avenue, Cranford, on Sunday, November 5, at 2 p.m. It is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Cost is $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Send checks to Israel Support, 18 Shalom Way, Scotch Plains, NJ 07076.
