      EVENT DETAILS
      AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY TO HOST SCREENING AND DISCUSSION OF “FROM BROOKLYN TO BEIRUT”

      The American Jewish Historical Society will host a screening of Rola Khayyat’s documentary film, “From Brooklyn to Beirut,” followed by a discussion with Regine Basha on Thursday, Dec. 14 at 7 pm in the Forchheimer Auditorium at the AJHS (15 West 16th Street).

      In the film, Khayyat explores the landscape of belonging for the community of Lebanese Jews in New York – along with the fragilities and complexities associated with their complex identity. Jews have lived in what is today Lebanon since Biblical times. As internal and regional tensions tore Lebanon apart, Lebanese Jews began to emigrate and settle abroad in countries including the U.S. In their new homes, they have formed vibrant communities where Lebanese traditions and values are maintained; Arabic language, music and cinema are used and celebrated; and memories of Lebanon are constantly recalled and shared.

      Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for students, seniors and AJHS and ASF members, and $12 at the door.
