Speakers Bureau
The foundation of JIMENA is built upon the dedication and involvement of our volunteer Speakers Bureau. Through their individual work to ensure the preservation and advancement of the heritage and history of Jews from Arab countries and Iran, JIMENA speakers are fulfilling our mission of educating and advocating on behalf of the 850,000 Jews refugees from the Middle East and North Africa.
