New UGP publication: Life & Legacy: A Window into Jewish Life Across the Islamic World

07 November 2023

The book "Life & Legacy: A Window into Jewish Life Across the Islamic World" is now available online and open access at UGP.

Through stunning images, maps and insightful commentary, this book offers a glimpse into the diversity, historical legacy, and rich culture of Jewish communities within the Muslim world. From the growing Jewish community of Dubai to ancient synagogues and shrines, these photographs capture the beauty and complexity of Jewish life around North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. Above all, this photographic book serves as a reminder of the enduring spirit of the Jewish people and the diversity of lived experiences within Islamic societies.

This volume presents thematically organized contemporary images of both Jewish life and Jewish heritage from across the Middle Eastern and North Africa.

Interspersed throughout the images are an assortment of short essays written by scholars and University of Groningen students to contextualize the presented images.
