Many of us have stereotypes of what "Jewish" looks like and for many of us that image is white and European. Yet with the blossoming Jewish multiculturalism movement, led by the dynamic Loolwa Khazzoom, the myth of a "monolithic Jewish community" is about to be debunked. Focusing on the experiences of Jewish women of two rich and varied regions, At Home in Exile reveals the hidden worlds of Jewish women often misunderstood or maligned by both the cultures in which they live and the European-Jewish community. Stories include one woman and her family’s flight from persecution in Libya, a writer’s exploration of the category "Arab Jew," and a light-skinned, Moroccan-born woman trying to "pass" in order to gain acceptance among European Jews in Tehran.

"What a treasure this book holds! For many of us whose Eastern European culture has for so long been taken as the Jewish norm, The Flying Camel provides the missing tiles in the mosaic puzzle which is the global story of Jewish women's lives."
