Jewish Refugees Of The Middle East
Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Holocaust Memorial Center
Orchard Lake Rd
Farmington Hills, MI

Barbara Moretsky, President of StandWithUs-Michigan, will introduce our
speakers, Celia Romm Livermore and Sylvie Salei and the project that
began following the passage of a Law by the Knesset that will annually
designate November 30 for commemoration of the flight of Jews >from Arab
lands, Iran and North Africa.

Celia Romm Livermore is a descendant of Holocaust survivors and spent
much her early life with her family in Beer-Sheva. The experience of
living in a community dominated by Jewish immigrants >from Arab lands led
to her interest in sharing their story. After serving in the IDF, she
received a Masters Degree and eventually her PhD >from the University of
Toronto. Since 2001, Celia has been a tenured Professor of Information
Systems Management at Wayne State University.

Sylvie Salei is a Sephardic Jew who was born in Tunisia. She settled
with her family in Paris after their expulsion >from Tunis, which is
central to her story. Later, Sylvie moved to Israel, where she married
an Israeli citizen of Ashkenazi background. When Sylvie moved to
Michigan, she became a U.S. citizen. She is the owner of Sylvie's Day
Spa in Farmington Hills. Sylvie's daughter lives in New York and her
son lives in Las Vegas. She has expertise in French, Arabic and Hebrew.
