Mizrahi Heritage Day: November 30th

Dear Educators,

As of a 2014 Knesset Bill, November 30th is Mizrahi Heritage Day in Israel. In America many Jewish organizations are using the time preceding and following November 30th as an opportunity to honor Mizrahi Heritage in their communities. Last year the Jewish Community High School of the Bay spearheaded an initiative to start a Mizrahi Heritage Week honoring the members of the community who come from the Middle East and North Africa whose stories are often ignored in the larger Jewish narrative.

Adam Eilath, a teacher at the school is available to speak with any educator in the Bay Area who is interested in developing programming at their institution around November 30th. His email is aeilath@jchsofthebay.org. Attached is a mini curriculum guide for teachers.
