Synopsis:

Following World War II, members of the sizable Jewish community in what had been Kurdistan, now part of Iraq, left their homeland and resettled in Palestine where they were quickly assimilated with the dominant Israeli-Jewish culture.

The Jews of Kurdistan is a unique historical document in that it presents a picture of Kurdish Jewish life and culture prior to World War II. It is the only ethnological study of the Kurdish Jews ever written and provides a comprehensive look at their material culture, life cycles, religious practices, occupations, and relations with the Muslims.
In his preface, Raphael Patai offers data he considers important for supplementing Brauer's book, and comments on the book's values and limitations fifty years after Brauer wrote it. Patai has included additional information elicited from Kurdish Jews in Jerusalem, verified quotations, and completed the bibliography.

Book Description: The Jews of Kurdistan is a unique historical document in that it presents a picture of Kurdish Jewish life and culture prior to World War II.

Book Description Wayne State University Press, Detroit, MI, 1993. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Photographs (illustrator). 1st Edition. Brand New, Beautiful and Unread First Edition/1st Printing (Numberline to "1"). "The Jews of Kurdistan is a unique historical document in that it presents a picture of Kurdish Jewish life and culture prior to World War II. It is the only ethnological study of the Kurdish Jews ever written and provides a comprehensive look at their material culture, life cycles, religious practices, occupations, and relations with the Muslims." It is of particular and unique distinction, inasmuch as "members of the sizable Jewish community in what had been Kurdistan, now part of Iraq, left their homeland and resettled in Palestine where they were quickly assimilated with the dominant Israeli-Jewish culture following World War II," and no longer constitute a distinct ethnic culture, although their cultural heritage continues to significantly influence the present day customs of their descendants. A fascinating study, much of it adapted directly from directly transcribed oral histories. May require additional postage for expedited or international delivery. Ships FAST!! and securely (in a well-padded box with free domestic tracking) from Southern California. Bookseller Inventory # ABE1260B29
