The New York  Sephardic Film Festival  Presents: 

THE SYRIAN JEWISH COMMUNITY: COMING TO AMERICA (1900-1919)

FEBRUARY 29, 2020 8:00 PM 

This episode begins in the early 20th century and charts the arrival of Syrian Jews in America. It includes the harrowing boat trip overseas, Ellis Island, and life on the Lower East Side – how the first immigrants worked as peddlers, established their first synagogue, the first Syrian-Jewish stores, restaurants and businesses, as well as institutions such as the burial society and the charitable organization, Maoz Laebyon.  We also hear how the community faced anti-Syrian sentiment, and preserved their values and customs in the face of assimilation.
