Greeks and Jews in Egypt

February 16, 2020

Join us on Sunday February 16th at 2pm.


Kehila Kedosha Janina is proud to welcome Professor Alexander Kitroeff as Scholar in Residence for a lecture on the subject of Greeks and Jews in Egypt.


“From the early nineteenth century through to the 1960s, the Greeks formed the largest, most economically powerful, and geographically and socially diverse of all European communities in Egypt. Although they benefited from the privileges extended to foreigners and the control exercised by Britain, they claimed nonetheless to enjoy a special relationship with Egypt and the Egyptians, seeing themselves as contributors to the country’s modernization.”


Alexander Kitroeff is Professor of History at Haverford College. He is the author of numerous books, including most recently "The Greeks and the Making of Modern Egypt."


Prof. Alexander Kitroeff was born in Athens, but his paternal grandparents were born in Alexandria, his great grandfather having left Chios in the late 19th century in order to become involved in the cotton business. His family left Egypt and moved to Greece in the 1950s and 1960s when life in Egypt became difficult for the Greeks.


Professor Kitroeff received his doctorate from Oxford University.​

Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to
