Renee Saltiel and Solon Molho grew up in one of the greatest Sephardic Jewish communities, Salonika, or Thessaloniki, in today's Greece. 90,000 Jews lived there before WWII and by the time the Germans had rounded up the city's Jews, almost none were left. A few returned. Renee and Solon did manage to survive, thanks to a Spanish diplomat and some very brave Greek families. Writer/Director: Edward Serotta. Vienna, 2013. 25 mins.

A Guide for the Perplexed - A Conversation with Dara Horn
Monday, January 27, 2014 through Tuesday, January 28, 2014
 
Join us for a special conversation with the author in combination with viewing a Yeshiva University Museum exhibition
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( Yeshiva University Museum)
Yeshiva University Museum
City: New York

Additional Notes:
In her critically acclaimed new novel, A Guide for the Perplexed, Dara Horn uses the Cairo Geniza as the backdrop for a powerful story about our search for knowledge, intimacy and enlightenment. Intertwining the remarkable story of the Geniza's discovery with a dramatic contemporary tale of a futuristic software program that records everything its users do, A Guide is a riveting story and an insightful meditation on the power and limits of human imagination, as well as on the tension between faith and reason.

Join us for a special conversation with the author in combination with a viewing of Yeshiva University Museum’s Threshold to the Sacred: The Ark Door of Cairo’s Ben Ezra Synagogue. Featured in the exhibition are two manuscripts by Moses Maimonides, including a draft of a portion of his Guide for the Perplexed, one of the greatest philosophical works of the Middle Ages – and an inspiration for Horn’s novelistic tour-de-force. Guests are invited to visit the exhibition before the program, beginning at 6:45pm.
