The Yemenite Conference

The Yemenite Conference was a three day academic and cultural conference presenting the cultural heritage of Yemenite Jews and their commonalities with Muslims of Yemeni heritage, organized by E’eleh BeTamar in conjunction with the American Sephardi Federation and the Institute of Semitic Studies.
The Teimani Experience was an exhibition in the Yeshiva University Museum’s Winnick Gallery at the Center for Jewish History. Organized as part of The Yemenite Conference, the exhibition aimed to immerse visitors in the sights, sounds, and even smells of the Yemenite Jewish culture, including the Birth Room recreated in Israel by Yemenite women from Sana’a who continued the tradition of making the birth mother the center of attention after both she and her newborn survived for thirty days.
