Sephardic, Mizrahi, and LGBTQ+: An intersectional experience on the margins (Spring 2021)

Thursday, June 24, 2021
5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
See session list below for specific session times and locations.
Educator: Ruben Shimonov
Online CA

Join us for a lively discussion about an often-overlooked segment of the Jewish world: LGBTQ+, Mizrahi, and Sephardic Jews.

This session will provide an opportunity to begin exploring the diversity of Sephardic and Mizrahi histories and cultures. We will also discover the challenges that queer Jews from Sephardic and Mizrahi backgrounds have faced in finding spaces that fully embrace their multilayered identities. We will then zoom in on the creation and growth of the Sephardic Mizrahi Q Network, whose founding Executive Director will discuss how the grassroots movement has provided a vibrant, supportive, and much-needed community for individuals at the intersection of LGBTQ+ and Sephardic-Mizrahi Jewish life.


Sponsored by: Bend the Arc, JCC  Harlem, Sephardic Mizrahi Q Network
