Members of the Sassoon dynasty, the 'Rothschilds of the East', and their business associates settled in England at the turn of the last century where they aspired to become part of the establishment, spending their wealth on grand homes and valuable collections. 


Lyn  Julius will talk about  such personalities as Sir Philip Sassoon, who hobnobbed with kings, ministers and artists; Hannah Gubbay,  Sir Percival David, Rachel Beer and others.  Are the Saatchis and the Reuben brothers today's plutocrats from Baghdad?


The Event will be held in English


The Center 


The Babylonian Jewry Heritage Center was founded in 1973 as a non-profit organisation to preserve the heritage of the Babylonian Jewish exile which no longer exists today.


Located in Or-Yehuda, it is the largest institute in the world dedicated to documenting, researching, collecting and preserving the spiritual treasures and art created by Babylonian Jewry. Babylonia was the location of the most significant works of the Jewish nation, including: the Babylonian Talmud, the writings of the Geonim, the Responsa works, and more.


In order to preserve this heritage, collect the textual and visual materials and make them accessible to the general public, various branches of the Center were established: the museum, the research institute, the library and the treasures and guidance department.
