Hi friends,
I thought you might be interested in this event  :)
Evelina

NY Premiere
Shalom Asmara - Tuesday, February 6, 2007 / 6:30PM

Shalom Asmara documents the untold story of the Jews of Eritrea, in western Africa. At the turn of the 20th century, Jews from the southern Arabian Peninsula and the coasts of the Mediterranean settled Asmara, then under Italian rule. They once formed a strong local community, but by 1975 few of them were left. Today, their story is preserved with jealous nostalgia by the elders and by followers of other religions.
