This Web site is by, for, and of the entire community of Jews of Libya. I thank everyone who made this project possible, especially the narrators, who contributed their time, stories, and photographs to ensure that the life and memories
of the Jews of Libya will not vanish. I am grateful to the Librarians Association of the University of California (LAUC), for support and help in realizing a long-held dream; to Pedi Benattia, for his generosity of time, spirit, and material, and his wonderful work with the newsletter ADA; to Professor Maurice Roumani, a kind, warm, and giving brother, for all his contributions,
including introductions to events and to members of the community whom I had never met or had been too young to remember; to François Jeanneau, for his skillful and elegant contribution to making this Web site a reality; and finally to my patient husband, Morton, who has been a constant source of help and support.
I hope all of you in the Libyan Jewish community will continue contributing by sending any information, photographs, manuscripts, etc. that will enhance the understanding of this unique community.
