bounce-3177138-785714@...
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register
for the conference or to purchase LIVE! Visit the conference website,
www.iajgs2016.org , for more information about all aspects of the
conference.

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.

In our previous message, we incorrectly identified Deputy Consul General
Ravit Baer as Consul General. As previously announced, Ms. Baer, a
career diplomat in the Israeli foreign service, served
in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Deputy Consul General to
the Pacific Northwest. We are honored to have her present the August 11
screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The Dove
Flyer," and apologize for incorrectly identifying her.

photos.
