The Forgotten Exodus

Dr. Saba Soomekh, AJC Director of Training and Education

Join American Jewish Committee Cincinnati for an evening of meaningful conversation and learn how to counter anti-Israel bias by leveraging diverse Jewish historical narratives. Dr. Soomekh is a first-generation Iranian Jew whose family is part of the Forgotten Exodus. She shares her family’s story which dispels myths about Israel and promotes the proud heritage of Jews throughout the Middle East.

Dr. Soomekh came to AJC after twenty years as a professor and university administrator. She received her bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, her master’s degree in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School, and her doctorate in Religious Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Proudly co-sponsored by Wise Temple.
