YONKERS, NY — November 4, 2018 — As early as the late 19th Century, there was a small community of Assyrians in Yonkers, New York. By 1914 and 1915, many Assyrians fled Ottoman Turkey and Persia seeking refuge from genocide, and with the assistance of American Presbyterian missionaries, many found their way to bolstering a growing population in Yonkers. This community established its own churches, community associations, and businesses, becoming an essential part of the American mosaic while retaining its culture through religion, language, social gatherings, and traditional foods. Celebrating community life and their new home, Assyrian Americans of Yonkers continued to play an integral role in American society while educating themselves about the continuous plight of their brethren in the Middle East and passing on their heritage to future generations. 

Publication is expected in February 2019.

  1. I am looking to get a hold of RUTH KAMBAR. She wrote a comment in a Dutch Daily Newspaper(RD) which I also read. I placed a comment and she replied to my comment stating she would like to correspond further by email. I don’t know where she lives or what her email is. Hopefully, you can help me! Thank you.

        You are probably referring to the following:

        He wrote… “I am looking to get a hold of RUTH KAMBAR. She wrote a comment in a Dutch Daily Newspaper(RD) which I also read.

        I left a message to advise him to send his email and other contact to me and then I would reach out to you to decide if you were interested in following up. He evidently had cont left another message in the comment section nor has ne send me his information. So that is where it stands. Should he reach out, I will find a ay to reach you. Kindly, Hezi
