´Come, Let´s Meet´ in Istanbul University
A day of conversation was organized in Istanbul University's Eastern Languages Institute, Auzef Campus Building, on November 7th. The aim of this conversation day was for the Turkish people that had never met a Jew in their lives, to get to know the Jewish people, Jewish cultures, Jewish traditions. This way, the coordinators intend to eliminate the hate towards the Jewish community that comes out of ignorance.
The event's coordinators described it on the event banner as follows: "Turkish Jew... Does this definition seem odd to you? Come, Let's Meet. You ask us all the questions that come to your mind, let us answer them. Come, let's chat face to face. Experience yourselves that we, who grew up in the same land as you, are not that different."
