JIMENA: Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa

November 5, 2015 -    

JIMENA aims  to achieve universal recognition for the heritage and history of the 850,000 indigenous Jewish refugees from the Middle East and North Africa. Our programs aim to ensure that the accurate history of Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews is incorporated into mainstream Jewish and Middle Eastern narratives in order to create balance in attitudes, narratives, and  discourse about Middle Eastern refugees and the modern Jewish experience.
