Help us pursue justice for former Jewish refugees from the Middle East and North Africa.

Please support JIMENA in its mission to achieve universal recognition of Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews and their descendants 


“I was born in 1930 in Taht Al Takia, the Jewish quarter of the old city of Baghdad. Baghdad was my home and Iraq was my country. But my sense of national identity was shattered when Muslim mobs looted and burned Jewish homes and businesses, murdering hundreds of Jewish men, women and children in the 1941 pogrom known as the Farhud. I was 10 years old. There was nowhere to run, and no country to take us in.”
JIMENA Board Member, Joseph Samuels in Washington Post Help us share their stories
