Tour Global Jewish Life: Egypt

Thursday at 12:00pm PDT

Embark on a journey through time, starting from the era of Moses through the Golden Age of Egyptian Jewry, up to today's Jewish Egypt. Our destination is an Egypt that was a harmonious blend of tolerance, indigenous traditions, and open-mindedness, where Jews and their Muslim neighbors coexisted peacefully, and extended families enjoyed a safe and joyous existence. Along the way, we will explore both world and Jewish history, our tour guide Louise Arwas’ family history, and even make stops at iconic Jewish sites in Egypt. Through this journey, we will honor the past and reflect on the possibilities of a brighter future.

Louise Arwas Headshot

Louise Arwas is originally from London. Her father, grandparents and great-grandparents came from Alexandria, Egypt, but were expelled, together with 30,000 Jews, during the Suez Crisis of 1956. She is currently involved in several related education projects, including organizing heritage tours to Cairo and Alexandria with former community members.
