Sarah Levin works with Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews to explore, preserve, protect, and share their heritage, identities, and experiences. The marginalization of Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews from mainstream American Jewish life has left American Jews with a narrow view of what Jewishness looks like, what countries it comes from, what traditions it follows, what languages it speaks, how it engages with other Middle Eastern communities, and how it experiences Israel. Sarah has produced over 100 cultural events nation-wide, developed international partnerships, and provided briefs on Jewish refugees from Arab countries. At JIMENA: Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa, where she serves as the Executive Director, Sarah plays a lead role in the movement towards international Mizrahi and Sephardic acknowledgment, justice, and redress. Join us on December 1st from 12-1pm ET to hear about the history and traditions of the communities Sarah works with as well as her desire to include diverse voices in the Jewish communal narrative.
