Dear Carole

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.

Best regards from Renée and Naim.
