Kehila Kedosha Janina Museum is honored to show a rarely seen documentary film by Bob Bedford, “Ottoman Salonika.” Bob Bedford is the Executive Vice President of the New York-based Foundation for the Advancement of Sephardic Studies and Culture, whose mission is to preserve and promote the complex and centuries-old culture of the Sephardic communities of Turkey, Greece, the Balkans, Europe, and the United States.
Ottoman Salonika offers a rarely seen glimpse into the Jewish world of Thessaloniki (Salonika) before it became part of Modern Greece in 1912. A must see for all those who descend from this traditional Judeo-Speaking Sephardic world and all those who are interested in the history of Jewish life in the Balkans.
Marcia Haddad Ikonomopoulos, Mjuseum Director of Kehila Kedosha Janina and granddaughter of a ‘hamali’ from Salonika, will give a brief introduction to the film.
