“Memoirs of Baghdad”
September 19, 7 p.m., Jewish Genealogical Society
Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento
Daniel Khazzoom’s family can be traced back more than 600 years in Baghdad.
He will discuss this rich heritage at the Jewish Genealogy Society’s September
meeting. Dr. Khazzoom will share recollections of the life of the Baghdad
Jewish community, including pictures of Jewish sites and ceremonial objects
dating back hundreds of years.
The Baghdad Jews are not Ashkenazim (Jews from Northern and Eastern Europe)
or Sephardim (descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jews) but part of a third
major branch of Judaism, the Mizrakhim (Middle Eastern Jews).
Dr. Khazzoom, who grew up in Baghdad, earned a Ph.D. in mathematical
economics from Harvard and has taught at UC Berkeley, Stanford, San Jose State and
several major universities on the east coast.
Don't miss this personal look at Baghdad when Dr. Daniel Khazzoom joins us at
our September 19 meeting. For more information about the Jewish Genealogical
