Galit Baram, Consul General of Israel in Toronto and Western Canada together with Sephardi Voices invite you to commemorate Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries. With Linda Menuhin Abdul Aziz who will share her story from Bagdad to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Testimonies will be delivered by members of the Toronto Jewish community.

Jewish refugee Day, or Yom Plitim in Hebrew, is marked on November 30th. It commemorates the expulsion of more than 850 thousand Jews from the Arab world during the nascent years of the State of Israel. This day commemorates the expulsion of entire Jewish communities from the countries in which they lived for millennia. Many of them were absorbed in Israel and have contributed greatly to the creation of the Jewish Homeland. Others were integrated into the Jewish Diaspora of North America and Europe. While this day is recognized annually in Israel, less is known about the hardships of these Jewish refugees worldwide. Their stories of struggle and resilience are inspiring.

Join us on Sunday, November 29th at 2pm (EST) for a special online commemoration webinar, coordinated with Sephardic Voices organization. We will hear from keynote speaker Linda Menuhin Abdul Aziz, who will share the story of her personal journey from Baghdad to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem.
