Mizrahi Identity in the US

Thursday, November 12th

Mizrahi Identity in the USPanelists include: Tamar Zaken – Chief Program Officer at HaMaqom; Jewish educator Hadar Cohen – Multi-Media Feminist Artist, Writer, and Dancer; Fellow, Abrahamic House Rabbi Daniel Bouskila – Director, Sephardic Educational Center in Jerusalem and Los Angeles; Rabbi, Westwood Village Synagogue 

There are over 300,000 Jews of Mizrachi and Sephardic descent living in the United States these days; however, their role in the American Jewish community is rarely discussed. Join us for a lively panel on the visibility of Mizrachi American Jews and where they fall in the contemporary discussions surrounding intersectionality, Jewish religious identity, and American Jewish inter-community divides.
