Retelling The Untold Story of Jewish Refugees From Arab Lands: A Fireside Chat With Sylvain Abitbol, Co-President Of Justice For Jews From Arab Lands

More than 850,000 Jews from across the Middle East left Arab countries under threatening conditions or were expelled following Israel’s independence in 1948, leaving behind millennia of history as well as huge amounts of assets, which they gave up in exchange for safety.

To help us unpack why, and explain what needs to be done to raise awareness for this important issue, we speak to Sylvain Abitbol. Born in Morocco, he is a Montreal businessman who currently serves as Co-President for the organization Justice for Jews from Arab Countries, and previously served as co-president of the Canadian Jewish Congress from 2007 to 2009.
