and lecturer Irene Shaland




The Tayar Foundation for Jewish Heritage in Malta presents …Undiscovered Jewish Malta – Through the Eyes of travel author and lecturer Irene Shaland


Join Irene Shaland, internationally-published art and travel writer, educator, and lecturer for a deeper look at Malta’s Jewish history and present day society. This presentation will highlight Malta’s most interesting Jewish narrative through a spellbinding trajectory still under-the-radar for most travelers: from Israelites sailing there with Phoenicians three thousand years ago, to the first Jewish traveler, the Biblical Paul, arriving in Malta in the first century CE, through the dark times of Jewish slavery during the Knights of St. John’s rule in the 16th century, to today’s blossoming Jewish community. Much of what will be shared has been has been captured in her latest book “Shaland’s Jewish Travel Guide to Malta and Corsica” which is available on Amazon UK, Amazon USA or the Amazon in your country.
The Tayar Foundation was established to safeguard Malta’s precious Jewish History. In addition, our purpose and aims include
– To restore the Kalkara and Ta’ Braxia cemeteries on behalf of the Jewish Community of Malta
– To bring awareness to the general public, locally and internationally, of the Jewish communities that lived in the archipelago
– To promote the study of Jewish communities in Malta since Roman times
– To hold events about Jewish History and Culture for the benefit of the Maltese community
