The Sephardim in Israel – state of affairs

5151 Chemin de la Côte-Ste-Catherine, Montreal, QC H3W 1M6


A retrospective of the tumultuous history of the integration of the Sephardim in Israeli society since the birth of the state, and the difficult but real advances of the new generation of Israeli born Sephardim in the fields of education, science, economy, military and politics – is being a Sephardi in Israel still a handicap today?
