Sephardic and Mizrahi Storytelling, from Diversify Your Narrative

Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews are Jewish Diasporic groups that are often underrepresented in education and media. Mizrahi and Sephardic culture is rich, vibrant, and dynamic. In this lesson plan, which was adapted from JIMENA’s Journey to the Mizrah Curriculum students will learn about Mizrahi and Sephardic culture, analyze how cultural elements appear in folktales, and then create their own storybook incorporating folktales and elements of their own culture.

Appropriate for grades 6-8
