Aliyah from Rhode Island: A Photo-Text Exhibit

This exhibit by Shai Afsai focuses on Rhode Islanders who have moved to Israel (made "aliyah") and will be displayed in the Central Library's Meeting Room through the month of November. Funded by the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, this photo-text exhibit features photographs and text from interviews, showcasing both a pictorial and oral history of the phenomenon of aliyah from Rhode Island. 

The opening of the exhibit will take place on Sunday, November 5  at 2 PM and will be accompanied by a panel discussion -- with five local experts, scholars, and researchers -- on the subject of aliyah from Rhode Island, constituting the Fall 2017 meeting of the Rhode Island Jewish Historical Association.
