Book Review co-sponsored by TBS Sisterhood & The Idelson Library in Honor of Jewish Book Month

November 1, 2023 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm

The Sassoons: The Great Global Merchants and the Making of an Empire by Joseph Sassoon, reviewed by Elaine Marks

A spectacular generational saga of the making (and undoing) of a family dynasty: the riveting untold story of the gilded Jewish Bagdadi Sassoons, who built a vast empire through global finance and trade—cotton, opium, shipping, banking—that reached across three continents and ultimately changed the destinies of nations.

The event is free and open to the public.

Light refreshments, sponsored by Sisterhood, will be available in the Chapel foyer after the book review.
