IEC were proud and ecstatic to welcome a native Iraqi to our center. Edwin Shuker is an Iraqi-Jewish business-person and philanthropist.
Born in Baghdad, Edwin works to preserve Jewish shrines and sites to keep the link between Iraq and its displaced Jewish community.
Edwin is Vice President of the European Jewish Congress and a member of the Executive of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
Mr Shuker was shown around the premises and was offered plenty to eat and drink in the traditional Iraqi hospitality style. IEC entertained all his questions and opinions about the centre and would love to see him again.
