1. Call for Papers: the Holocaust and its Impact on North African and Middle Eastern Jewry (Roumani)

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Holocaust is usually associated with European Jewry. The suffering of other Jewish communities, such as those in the Middle East and North Africa, at the hands of the Germans or their proxies was minimal compared to what occurred in Europe. Nevertheless, Germany's penetration into the Middle East and North Africa did not spare the Jewish communities with whom they came in contact. The fact that the success of the Germans was only partially realized was due to the turn of events at the battle of El-Alamein and the subsequent defeat of the German forces in North Africa.

THE J.R. ELYACHAR CENTER FOR SEPHARDI STUDIES AT BEN-GURION UNIVERSTY OF THE NEGEV plans to hold an INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE on the HOLOCAUST AND ITS IMPACT ON NORTH AFRICAN AND MIDDLE EASTERN JEWRY DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR. The conference will be held in Beer-Sheva on Wednesday and
Thursday, March 13 and 14, 2002.

This is the first international conference to look into how these communities were affected by the Holocaust and to enable their stories to be told.

The conference welcomes proposals on all communities where Jews were subjected to Nazi occupation, persecution, internment in camps and forced labor. Scholars are urged to present any documents and/or stories of survivors of the period between 1941 and 1945.

Deadline for submission of abstract of papers (preferably by e-mail) is October 31, 2001.

Papers submitted at the conference will be considered for publication in a volume on the subject.

4. Query: Alvaro Mendez and the Crypto-Jewish Community in Elizabethan England (Meyers)

Date: Sat, 19 May 2001 10:07:59 -0400
From: Charles Meyers <scholar5@flite.net>
via: Rachel Simon <rsimon@Princeton.EDU>

Hi Everyone,

I have been working for over thirty years on the Crypto-Jewish community in Elizabethan England whose leader was Dr. Hector Nunes: Portuguese physician, merchant, and spy for the English government.

In this context, I have identified three members of what I like to call Nunes' economic triumverate: SIMAO SOIERO, SALVADOR NUNES, AND ALVARO MENDEZ

Mendez, also of Portuguese origin, made his fortune initially as a diamond merchant in India, and was based in Antwerp. However, by 1585, he "fled" to Constantinople, renounced his name and "alleged" Christian beliefs and declared his Jewish faith as:

SOLOMON ibn Jaish (Yaish). He was also called: Don Aluaro Mendas, Duke of Mytelene, and is known in the English Calendar of State Papers as Solomon ABENAES. In 1588, at the behest of the Sultan, he represented the Empire with Barton, the English ambassador. ABENAES was a merchant and represented Murad II etc.

I have been trying to find "sources" that "involve" him. I have the main secondary or primary texts on the Ottoman Empire, 1300-1600 but his name is not mentioned. Please help me if you can.

Thank you so much.

Charles Meyers

ISRAEL STUDIES AT SOAS

MA Israeli and Jewish Diaspora Studies

SOAS (the School of Oriental and African Studies), University of London has been an international centre for Middle East Studies since its
establishment over eighty years ago. Its unrivalled library in Hebraica, Jewish and Israeli Studies is the best of any European University and therefore a great attraction for many scholars and researchers.

The development and growth of Israeli Studies in recent years has promoted the introduction of a new masters programme in the autumn of 2001. The MA
Israeli and Jewish Diaspora Studies is an interdisciplinary degree which will explore the history, culture, politics, languages and music of Israel
and its relationship with the Jews of the Diaspora. Based on a modular system, the subjects covered could be as diverse as the political thought
of Vladimir Jabotinsky, the poetry of Yehuda Amichai, the struggle of Soviet Jews for emigration, the writings of Mendele Moykher-Sforim, the Jews of India, the music of the hasidim, the teachings of the Rambam and the Ramban.

It will be taught essentially by the faculty of the Near and Middle Eastern Studies Department at SOAS. The SOAS Music Department and the London School of Jewish Studies will also make major contributions to the teaching of the courses.

The Structure of the Course:

The MA is taken over one year full-time or two/three years part-time.
It consists of:
- Three taught courses, one major subject and two minor, which start in October and finish in April
- Two essays, each to be completed by the end of the winter and spring terms
- A three hour examination in June
- A dissertation in the major subject to be completed by the following September

Subject: European Association for Jewish Culture Established

Foundation created to support Jewish cultural projects in Europe
By Richard Allen Greene

LONDON, May 30 (JTA) A $1 million foundation, the European Association for Jewish Culture, has been established to inject creativity into Jewish life across the continent. A joint project of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research in London and the Alliance Israelite Universelle in Paris, the foundation aims to provide a total of $200,000 a year in grants to artists from more than 25 countries across Europe.

While the association may run some workshops and conferences, its main purpose is to disburse grants of roughly $5,000 apiece to creative individuals in the visual or performing arts, Lena Stanley-Clamp, director of the association's London office, told JTA.

The foundation is supported by a grant from the European Union's Culture 2000 program and a charitable foundation based in Europe that has chosen to remain anonymous.

From: jcpa@netvision.net.il
Via: HJ Newsletter Ed <hjnews@oise.utoronto.ca>
Subject: Daniel Elazar On-Line Library

A New Jewish Studies Internet Resource

- at the Daniel Elazar On-Line Library

Daniel J. Elazar was the father of Jewish political studies. He wrote extensively about an authentic Jewish political tradition and looked at the entire Jewish world through the eyes of an American political scientist.

He also appealed to American studies students with his descriptions of American political culture, to Protestant theologians with his discussions of the idea of covenant, and to South Africans and Spaniards with his explanations of federal relations.

The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, founded and headed for 24 years by Prof. Elazar, has recently made available on the Internet some 240 of his most important articles and book excerpts -- as a major Jewish studies resource and as a lasting tribute to his memory.

Browse or search the Daniel Elazar On-Line Library for a wealth of content, written with impressive clarity of thought and perspective.

11. IVRI-NASAWI: Seeking Volunteers for New Organizing Committee (Elgrably)

From: Ivrinasawi@aol.com
Date: Saturday, July 7, 2001 2:07 PM
July 6, 2001

Dear Friends of Sephardi/Mizrahi Cultures:

Founded in 1996 as a Sephardi/Mizrahi cultural arts organization, Ivri-NASAWI, New Assn. of Sephardi/Mizrahi Artists & Writers Int'l, has been on something of a hiatus, while the organizers work to readjust our objectives. Our last program was cosponsoring a special concert of Middle Eastern/Sephardic music on June 23 as a benefit for Levantine Center. This center, destined to open in 2002, will provide a physical space for programs and a new home for Ivri-NASAWI, as well as other cultural and social organizations devoted to the Mediterranean and the Middle East.

In September, we will resume activities in Los Angeles, New York and the SF Bay Area. Our New York director, Joyce Allegra Maio, will be assisted by a new fulltime co-director, Ms. Karen Michels, who in fact will be devoting her professional efforts 1/2 time to Ivri-NASAWI and 1/2 time to Levantine Center. In the Bay Area, acting director Myra Lappin looks forward to hearing from you who wish to become a part of the Bay Area organizing committee. For now, I will remain as acting director in Los Angeles, until we can hold an election for a new president and vice-president, to be based in L.A. but representing Ivri-NASAWI's national interests.

Thus, in L.A., New York and the Bay Area, Ivri-NASAWI is currently seeking to establish a new Organizing Committee of volunteers to explore Sephardi/Mizrahi cultural arts, roots and identity, and issues pertinent to our lives today.

Volunteers will be asked to contribute some of their time and expertise in a variety of ways. We will meet again at the end of the summer to discuss programs for Fall-Winter 2001. We ask you to email us back if you would like to participate, either at ivrinasawi@aol.com or sephardi@ivri-nasawi.org.

We remain interested in receiving your letters, news, articles, reviews of books and music for use in our online publication, at www.ivri-nasawi.org; and we look forward to relaunching publication of a quarterly print newsletter later this year.

The organization seeks new funding sources and we'd like to hear from you on any thoughts you may have.

We encourage you to renew your membership, or if you have not previously been a member, visit our membership page online for further information.

For more, contact me at the number below.
