The Embassy of Azerbaijan honored the event with their presence. Watch video from co-sponsor Aftab Committee here.
◗ We continued in our partnership with the Washington Jewish Film Festival to bring you films featuring Sephardic and underrepresented Jewish heritages, including narratives of Iraq, Syria, Libya, Dagestan, India and Latin America this past year.
