Many of us have stereotypes of what Jewish looks likeand for many of us that image is white and European. Yet with the blossoming Jewish multiculturalism movement, led by the dynamic Loolwa Khazzoom, the myth of a monolithic Jewish community is about to be debunked. Focusing on the experiences of Jewish women of two rich and varied regions, At Home in Exile reveals the hidden worlds of Jewish women often misunderstood or maligned by both the cultures in which they live and the European-Jewish community. Stories include one woman and her familys flight from persecution in Libya, a writers exploration of the category Arab Jew, and a light-skinned, Moroccan-born woman trying to pass in order to gain acceptance among European Jews in Tehran.
