Sephardic Oral History Project interview by Marie Berdugo Cohen. Digitized in WAV format in March 2015. Biography: Simone Harrosh a vécu en Algérie dans une maison qui abritait 12 voisins. Ils se réunissaient tous chez ses parents pour le kiddoush du shabbat, pour célébrer la Soucca, et pour manger la dinde au couscous, à l'occasion de Rosh Hodesh. Son père, Eliahou Sakoun, policier en Algérie, arrivait à la synagogue avec son fusil. Sa mère, Simha Séban, s'occupait de la Hévra Kadisha et du Mikvé à Tlemcen. Simone a immigré en France à 11 ans, ensuite elle alla en Suisse, en Belgique, et à Londres où elle habita avec son mari, et où elle travailla au Central office of Informations. Actuellement, Simone est responsable du Mikvé Young Israel à Chomedey, qui réunit Ashkénazes et Sépharades. Elle nous décrit ici avec détails et précisions, l'éxigence de la Thora concernant Taharat Hamispaha, (la pureté familiale), qui fait partie des mitzvot à accomplir par la femme juive, tels que: les nérot, (bougies du Shabbat), hala (pain),etc. Simone nous parle des menstruations de la femme juive, des vérifications rigoureuses à faire pour savoir si elles ont pris fin, et finalement des préparatifs pour le bain rituel dans le Mikvé, qui représente dit Simone, l'espoir, la vie, une coopération avec Dieu, pour la création.
