Nous vous invitons à découvrir en exclusivité la première publication de la rubrique Salon de lecture :

L’auteur est née à Constantine en 1929. Issue de la bourgeoisie juive, elle vit avec sa famille dans le quartier européen. Son bisaïeul Salomon, originaire de Tétouan, a créé l’école du Talmud Torah en 1912. 

Josy enseigne les Lettres à l'Ecole professionnelle O.R.T, et reçoit en 1963 le 2e prix de comédie moderne au conservatoire de Strasbourg. En 1997, à 68 ans, elle entreprend des études littéraires à l'Université Paris 7, où elle obtient une maitrise avec mention T.B en 2003.

Dans son livre Les Deux Pères (2008), elle évoque la vie à Constantine, le déroulement des fêtes juives, ses amitiés avec des hommes de lettres, tels que Francis Ponge ou Emmanuel Roblès, mais aussi le pogrom de 1934, la montée des lois antijuives, l’abrogation du décret Crémieux et les premiers attentats de la guerre d’Algérieץ

 

 

 

TWO NEW MATRIMONIAL REGISTRIES OF THE PORTUGUESE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF TUNIS IN THE 19 TH CENTURY

After the publication of three matrimonial registries of the Portuguese (Livornese) Jewish community in Tunis in 1989 and 2000 by Robert Attal and Joseph Avivi of Ben-Zvi Institute, the authors (Gilles Boulu and Alain Nedjar), members of the research group « Tunisia » of the Jewish Genealogy Circle, France, are part of the discovery of two additional registers containing marriage contracts of this community of Italian-Iberian Jews called " Grana ". These two registers complement fortunately this series which originally included 10 records ranging from 1754 to 1917. These volumes number 3 (1812-1844) and 6 (1872-1881) containing respectively 429 and 234 different Ketûbbot, now allow access, with previous records, to an exceptional Ketûbbot corpus, continuously between 1788 and 1881. The authors present the contents of these two registers, collect statistics on this community and give some examples of genealogy now made possible in combination with other sources.

Dans le cadre des travaux entrepris par le Cercle de Généalogie Juive, et comme vous avez pu le voir à l’occasion du Congrès mondial de généalogie, vous signaler la parution prochaine du livre sur les nouveaux  registres matrimoniaux de la communauté portugaise de Tunis. Gilles Boulu et moi-même avons travaillé sur cet ouvrage depuis plus d’un an.

Notre ouvrage correspond au deuxième volume de la série consacrée aux "Sources pour la Généalogie des Juifs de Tunisie " après la parution en début d'année de celui traitant des Protégés du consulat de France.

Il va beaucoup plus loin que les ouvrages précédents de Robert Attal et Joseph Avivi car nous présentons ces registres de manière très détaillée et y avons inclus des centaines de notices généalogiques plus 5 monographies familiales. Figurent également une étude sur les calligraphies rabbiniques et différents documents. Nous avons utilisé de nombreuses sources pour écrire les notices sur les personnages dont celles du CADN, BECANE et l'Etat civil de Livourne.

 

Notre livre qui va paraître en novembre 2015 et pour lequel nous lançons une souscription porte le titre suivant :

Konstantinopol Djudyo - Una Koleksyon de Konsejas i Fotografias / Jewish Constantinople - A Collection of Stories and Photographes

 

Kohen, Roz

 

İstanbul, 2015 - Libra Kitap

 

English - Judeo Spanish - 369 pages

 

ISBN – 9786059022347

 

 

 

Jewish Constantinople portrays Jewish life during the transition from the Ottoman Empire to the modern Republic of Turkey. It spans the two generations prior to the one depicted in Jewish İstanbul. The semi-biographical vignettes feature the Kohen, Benshoam, Levi and Romano family ancestors. The book includes photographs from the Kohen family archives. These were the last generations to grow up speaking Judeo-Spanish. They strove to preserve their native tongue until the changes brought by the two World Wars overwhelmed their efforts. Through the passionate retelling of the previous generation’s stories and the use of colorful Judeo-Spanish proverbs, they sought to preserve not only the language but the cultural history it embodied.

Intrigue and Revolution – Chief Rabbis in Aleppo, Baghdad and Damascus 1744-1914 (Littman Library Press, 2015).

 

From the press website's description:

 

 

 

Yaron Harel has constructed a dramatic story of how eleven chief rabbis all became the subject of controversy and were subsequently dismissed. This took place against a background of crime and licentiousness rarely documented in the context of Jewish society. Set firmly in the social and political developments of the time, this colorful picture is very different from the commonly accepted image of Jewish communities in the Ottoman Empire.
