“The Tripoli Exodus” 50th Anniversary

We were pleased and proud to cooperate with the Organization of Jews from Lybia in Israel, hosting a conference commemorating 50 years to the emigration of the last Jews from Lybia.

Over 200 guests participated, each with their own personal, moving story.

Amos Gueta shared his family story, accompanied by a fascinating presentation. His family – like many others – suffered violence and hatred, before managing to leave Tripoli, in 1967.

Journalist Sivan Rahav Meir also attended the event, with her grandmother and family members, and shared some family stories and customs.

All the guests were move and marveled by the gathering.
