Join American Sephardi Federation & others at the JW3, London, on 28 August to celebrate the history, culture and multi-cultural roots of Aden. With live music, dance, & a photo exhibition. Get your ticket here
Throughout centuries of war, peace, progress and challenges, jews and muslims have lived in yemen. Aden became an important port with a difficult terrain and climate, and generations of conquest. It grew to be a strong hub under british rule, when it attracted many merchants from the region, expanding the local population to 100,000 in 1948. Among those living there in 1920 were a majority muslims, 14% jews, and the rest a mix of christians, zoroastrians, hindus, and others. It was a real meeting place of cultures and religions from around the region. The unique nature of this port on the tip of the arabian peninsula is a study in a multi-cultural society with deep indigenous roots.
