I recently played
the tape which you kindly gave me about the Jewish community
of Baghdad. It was certainly most interesting and I wish
to congratulate you on your effort. It records the remnant
of our community which has vanished from Iraq but now survives
in pockets all over the world. The story that you recorded
is a splendid historic exercise which shows the interest
you take in our roots.
By the way,
it is not correct to think that my grandfather was appointed
Chief Rabbi by the Ben Ish Hai; he was in fact elected by
the Rabbinical Council.
It was a great
pleasure meeting both you and your mother during your short
stay in London.
