Mizrahi Project tells refugee stories

With thanks: Ruth

As we approach 30 November, organisations around the world are busy arranging events to mark the exodus of Jewish refugees from Arab lands and Iran. One such organisation is the Mizrahi project, the brainchild of Pastor Dumisani Washington. Washington made the clip, Why are the Palestinians still refugees? The Mizrahi Project is holding several screenings of a new film comprising interviews with Mizrahi Jews telling their personal stories. Here is their calendar of events.


Gina Waldman escaped from Libya in 1967.  You can hear Gina's story here.
 Rachel Wahba's parents were from Iraq and Egypt. You can hear Rachel's story
