End of Jewish Communal Life in Jewish Lands

December 2 , 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

The End of Jewish Communal Life in the Arab Lands: International Conference.

For thousands of years Jews have lived across North Africa and the Middle East. Despite the long history, 1948-1967 marked the effectual end of many of these Jewish communities.

The Dahan Center, together with the American Sephardi Federation and Yeshiva University, seeks to explore this history through research and personal anecdotes.Join us as we host international scholars, as well as local students, to share stories of the rich life that once was and the events across the region that caused the majority of Jews to leave.
