      “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
