About The Campaign
Mizrahi Stories is a campaign that coincides with November — Mizrahi Heritage month. A series of initiatives to educate students about the history of Jewish communities in the Middle East and North Africa, this campaign consists of digital advocacy, student-led events on university campuses, and highlighting important voices.
The Jewish communities of the Middle East and North Africa date back to periods of antiquity. Despite their minority status under Islamic rule, several diasporic communities experienced periods of population growth, prosperity, and the development of culture.
Unfortunately, during and after the establishment of the State of Israel, over 850,000 Jews were persecuted and expelled from across the region for their Jewish identities.
All too often, these stories go unheard and unacknowledged on university campuses. CAMERA on Campus seeks to provide information and resources to educate others about the important history of Mizrahi Jews, from Morocco to Afghanistan.
