Re-Emerging: The Jews of Nigeria

January 23, 2014 7:00 PM

Join us for a screening and discussion with the filmmaker Jeff L. Lieberman. This film begins as a journey into the heart of Igboland and into the lives and culture of the Igbo people. But who could have imagined what it finds there? Across Nigeria there are dozens of village synagogues. The luminous individuals featured in the film powerfully demonstrate the Igbo's resilience as well as their firm commitment to Judaism. Samuel Chukwuma aka Shmuel Tikvah is a young man whose story exemplifies the turn toward Judaism. Suggested donation $5-10 per person. Please RSVP to [email protected].
