Iraqi Jewry from Babylonian Times to the State of Israel
The Babylonian Jewry Heritage Center
Rte 40 / Rte 412 Junction
Or Yehuda is a small working class town just off Rte 40, on Rte 412. Hidden away, on a quiet street, find The Babylonian Jewry Heritage Center, a history-rich museum of the Jews of Iraq, from ancient times to the 1940s, when many of the members of this well-established, wealthy community were forced to emigrate to pre-State Israel.
