Commemoration of Jews Expelled from Arab Lands

In partnership with Sephardic Heritage Museum

November 30th is the date proclaimed  by the Israeli Knesset  to commemorate the 850,000 Jews who were expelled from Arab lands. On November 29, 1947  the UN declared the partition of Palestine which led  to a “Kristallnacht” of destruction of Jewish properties and loss of life  in all Arab lands and Iran.
