VIDEO: Who are the Mizrahi Jews?

In the second century CE, the Romans exiled the Jews of Judea and created a far-flung diaspora. Those who ended up in the East in countries like Iraq, Iran, and Syria and in North African countries become known as Mizrahi Jews.

By the mid-twentieth century, Mizrahi Jews were in desperate need of a safe haven. From 1948 to 1972, nearly 600,000 immigrated to Israel alongside other Jewish refugees from around the world. 

NEWSRAEL: Following the First Arab–Israeli War, over 850,000 Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews were expelled or evacuated from Arab and Muslim-majority countries from 1948 until the early 1980s.
