Babylonian Jewry in the Diaspora

March 19, 2018

 

At the end of the 18th century, communities of Babylonian Jewry began to spread to the Diaspora, at first the Far East and later in Europe, Australia and North America. These communities continued to maintain strong ties with Babylonia, but were also greatly influenced by local culture. The exhibition presents a map of the dispersion of Babylonian Jewry. Judaica items and furniture from the Far East and English communities show the influence of local culture on daily life.
